Went out for a walk today, and saw the very colourful leaves. They’re mostly yellow, but there are some red and orange, and some are still green. Here are a few pictures.
The weather is great today, and no wind. The leaves won’t last long, though. And there’s usually a bit of snow in October, so I’m expecting some within the next month.
I’m actually not a big fan of this season. To me, it means winter is coming, and that’s cold. I don’t like feeling cold. Give me summer or tropical weather all year. I could definitely live in a tropical place.
How’s your fall (or spring for those of you in the southern hemisphere)?
Not far from where I live, there’s a storm water facility that doubles as a habitat for water birds and is also a pretty pleasant park. Well, because of the heavy rain (see my other post about it here), it flooded. And I took a video!
It was quite the scene when I went down there. But this is the purpose of the pond. It provides a place for storm water to go, and prevents flooding at street level in the neighbourhood. Many of the newer neighbourhoods have this kind of planning. Smart idea, isn’t it?
I really like this photo.
The clouds, the pond. It looks nice. It probably looks better in summer. Edmonton has the largest percentage of parkland in any major city in North America. And people think it’s not a very nice city. I think it can be.
