what will it look like?

i ride by this tree lined hill each morning.

it faces east.

for months i've wondered:

"what will it look like
in early autumn?"



i'll keep you posted if there are any changes!

The other side faces West; is there more colour on the other side? You'll have to get off your bike and walk up that hill now!!

hello alaine - the other side faces into a woodlot so it's hard to get a clear look or even a picture. however, the other side of the woodlot (which spreads over a few acres) looked pretty lovely yesterday so i'll nip over when the sun comes up and have a look see. have a lovely spring day. steven

It's gorgeous. Just like a woven tapestry.

I love watching one group of trees, like that, and seeing the progression of colours. I've been taking photos of one group to document the changes. Sometimes the changes overnight are dramatic!

It must be getting quite 'fresh' on your bike rides. These days you must arrive at your destination with a nice, red nose!

That's a beautiful blue sky to go with those fiery leaves, Steven. Autumn busting out all over!

Jenny Stevning said...

Beautiful! I can't wait to see the evolution. Oh, I am jealous.

Reya Mellicker said...

I'm sure the color will evolve as the season passes. Then the leaves will drop, do you think?

So looking forward to updates! Have a wonderful day, Steven.

Fall is such a splendid time of year, that impossibly blue sky makes the perfect backdrop too, can't beat Mother Nature!

Friko said...

and now you know! It is spectacular!
It is so good to meet other people with eyes to see; perhaps only bloggers do much of that, we are always keen to share and bring joy to others. I love blogging!

it is beautiful!

steven said...

hi willow - it is like a tapestry the way the little splashes of colour meld together so seamlessly. steven

steven said...

hi reya - oh yes, they'll drop. i'm thinking there'll be some good pics coming up soon. today was a tough day but with a little distance i'm seeing that there's little rays of goodness all the way through it!! have a lovely dc evening. steven

steven said...

hi bonnie - yes the morning ride in is cool - usually a standing air temp of two to five below. when you add in the wind chill of the ride -well it gets a little nippy. however. i'm dressed for it and i really love the morning air so it's worth it. the evening ride is usually warmer - not much but a little - and a lot windier - and uphill!!! it's all character building. steven

steven said...

hi golden west - it's lovely isn't it and the blue blue skies recently have been really really good for the eyes. have a lovely evening out there. steven

steven said...

hello jenny - it's really good isn't it!!! there's more coming and i'll do my best to up pictures as i get them - if they're any good of course!!! have a peaceful evening. steven

steven said...

hello magpie!!! the impossibly blue skies of late have been really really great!!! it's nice that they aren't accompanied by the deep cold that the deep blue skies mean in january. have a lovely evening. steven

steven said...

friko - i am amazed at the wealth that is shared around the blogging world in terms of beauty and kindness and care and exuberance for life. it leaves me in awe and reminds me of the essential goodness of people. have a lovely evening. steven

steven said...

gorgeous!

The leaves are taking a long time to fall this year. They were more progressed than that in Algonguin Park at the end of September. They have hardly started here in Toronto as yet. I guess there is not enough frost so far. Beneath that blue sky in Peterborough, your leaves are beginning to look just stunning, Steven.

steven said...

hi linda - i wish there'd been more of that blue sky for you and barry when you were here in the summer!!! have lovely day. steven
