With this post, I'm taking one of my steps back in time to this past autumn. I have a few photos which I took back at my old place and I have yet to share them. I've been incredibly inconsistent blog-wise these past several months and generally less organized than usual. The southern hemisphere is heading into autumn soon so just like a broken clock which tells the right time twice a day, my post is current somewhere.
It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.

The leaves that I saw, this past autumn didn't appear to be quite as vivid as years gone by. They were still lovely though - especially when reflected in the pond water. Most of these photos were taken in Mississauga during October, while I was preparing to move.

Here's the one exception to the location of these images. This was snapped when I was out walking with Benny at Frank's old place. We were in town for a family wedding. It's salmon roe which had leaked out of a recently caught female.

What's autumn without the lovely hues of potted mums? Beautiful in shades of yellow...
The leaves may have been more subtle this year, but the colours in general were beautiful.
