Fall colours arrive in Cedarvale

25th October: The fall colours began to arrive in Cedarvale some weeks ago. I am late in posting these photos, as I have been away viewing the colours in Norfolk County (Lake Erie). To show how the colours progress from week to week, here they are just starting near Markdale Pre-school:

And here are the same trees about a week later:

This is the entrance to the small wetland opposite the tennis courts:

These trees in all their glory are above the upper playing field:

Here are the sumacs beside the path, across from the playing field:

The trees in the ravine section of the park near the Bathurst St bridge are slower to turn. Here is an example:

I will have more photos of the current state of fall colours soon.
