“Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness”

Sumac beside the football field.

John Keats had it right. October in Cedarvale brings the turning of the leaves. We may have more muted colours than those showy New England displays, but I always enjoy watching the leaves gradually change.

Close to the Glencedar Rd footbridge.

There are even some apples still to be picked between the two bridges.

Slightly further south, the cattails provide a green foreground to the yellowing trees in the background.

October is indeed a great month for a stroll through our favourite Toronto ravine.
