A Spring Comeback?

Pink is not at all the colour I would expect to find on a crisp October day in Ontario. But there it was, putting on a show that could rival any springtime apple blossom, and just as spectacular as the surrounding autumn foliage. Taken at the Experimental Farm Arboretum this afternoon:

Euonymus 1

Euonymus 3

Another local photographer/blogger, candissabean captured some gorgeous images here last week, of this same shrub species. Do yourself a favour and check hers out: HERE and HERE

Also, if you happen to be in the area (and interested!) there are some unusual vistors at Dows’ Lake right now. Today we spotted some ducks I had never seen before~ Hooded Mergansers and Common Mergansers. They are spectacular ducks and I would have loved to see them much closer, but unfortunately, they were too far away for any decent photographs. I took some anyway so that I could at least identify them later. If you’re into that sort of thing, grab your binoculars and head out to see if you can spot them!

  1. I have never seen these! Truly, it does remind me of spring! Oh if only we could “skip over” winter. But I'm sure you will find the magic in that season as well! 😉
