I took this picture in November. The area looks quite different now as we’ve had a lot of snow since then (mostly this week!). However, the picture looks so peaceful, and the autumn colors are so lovely, that I decided that it was time to post it.

The holidays are a hectic time for most of us. This picture reminds me to slow down and enjoy the scenery and the moment.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

I should have a picture of a snow covered pine branch up today since we’ve had so much snow here in Toronto in the last few days! Still … I think the sight of pine probably makes most people think of winter and the holiday season so it’s fitting.

I hope that you are having a less snow filled day than I am!

The Milkweed Husks are all gone now, but I couldn’t resist one last shot of fall at it’s purest.

We had some snow on the ground for a week or so, but it melted away. However it’s getting quite cold again so I expect we’ll have some snow within a few days.

Now that the snow finally melted in the garden and our yard it’s time to get outside and clean up the garden.

There’s lots of dead foliage from last fall to cut down or remove.

The above photo is of a Crocosmia seedpod. I actually took the photo in the fall. The seeds wouldn’t have stayed in the pod this long! Not with the wind we have here in Toronto.

Have you started cleaning up your property too?
