I find it difficult to believe the two boards attached to the left hand corners of this building will do the job for long…

Red Barns…

As I was looking through my photos from the Sunday trip to Sudbury I realized I took three red barns…for some reason I love barns, old or new…and three red ones is awesome!  Remember these are taken while driving so one in particular is a bit blurry…

holding on…

I’ve this potted Bougainvillea on my deck…my yard will have to wait for next year to be finished, but I love this particular flower so bought one to put on my deck.   This photo was taken Oct. 4th…only a few tiny leaves and flowers left at the end of each stem…till next year!

to Sudbury…

My daughter and I went to Sudbury yesterday, which is about 1.5 hours west of North Bay…the colors are pretty much yellows, browns and rusts now…the beautiful reds are gone!  Even at that there isn’t a great deal of color…drive.tosudbury.2013


Serenade…

I was sitting on my deck last week enjoying the last bit of warm weather of the season and was treated to a serenade by this fellow for a rather long time, a good half hour or more…it wasn’t and angry sound, which is why I called it a serenade.   In the beginning could hear the singing but couldn’t see the bird as he was a long way up…once I spotted him I took the photo.  As you can see the leaves are falling!

Trout Lake…

For those of you who don’t know North Bay is fortunate to be surrounded by two awesome lakes…Lake Nipissing and Trout Lake…the latter is the much smaller lake of the two, (7 miles long 2miles wide)approximately 4 miles east of Lake Nipissing, but beautiful none the less.   Trout Lake is the source of North Bay’s drinking water…
This photo was taken of the shoreline of Trout Lake, to show the fall colors.

weed? it is a herb!

I saw this the other day during my fall color tour…don’t know what it is but thought it pretty.  I started out with a cropped version of this but then changed my mind…the full view is more interesting…I’ll do a crop another time.

weed.2013FYI...a friend to mine passed along the info it is a herb called Tansy…you can find out more info about it here…  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tansy    The tiny heads are yellow before they are dried…I did a search and found info and photos of it and realized I’m used to seeing the herb before it is dried…it looks different once dried…


strike a pose…

stopped at Sunset Park Beach to check for changing leaves and found this fellow and a buddy scurrying around…at first neither would let me get remotely close but after about a half hour of me taking photos of the ducks this one didn’t seem to be as timid…

fall has arrived…

the trees are changing color very quickly so I decided to go for a bit of a drive to get a few photos yesterday…as you can see it was a dull dreary day…I’m hoping to go again tomorrow…I love the vibrant colors…I just don’t  like what comes after fall!fall.colors.cemetary.road.c..2013
