I left off in a post two days ago with a photograph taken in Little Italy one day. On the same day, these shots and those to come over the next two posts were taken. This view is at Carling Avenue at the south end of Little Italy, with fall colours across the street.
I headed over to Commissioners Park, which flanks the north and east side of Dow's Lake. The lake is a reservoir for the Rideau Canal. The flowerbeds here are filled with tulips in May. Afterwards plants that last into the fall replace them until it comes time to start putting in the bulbs in October. Some of the beds were already in the process of that happening.
Here we have a view of the lake itself. The Arboretum and the campus at Carleton University can be seen in the background; the Canal waterway lies between them.
I kept to the path along the lake for this part of my walk.
Once in awhile I like to incorporate these Muskoka chairs into a lakeside view.
For today I finish off with this view looking across at Carleton University.
