November!

“No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member –
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds –
November!”
–   Thomas Hood, No!

I’m sure there is something good to be said about November, but in the meantime, here are some colourful fall shots….

I took my camera out of my purse quite often this week…here’s a smattering of what caught my eye…

clouds on Tuesday night were amazing – missed the orange sky because I was still at work, but these colours weren’t too shabby!

these pelicans were so hard to photograph because the one on the left wouldn’t stay still…

football players have nice arms - 2016 version

Football players have the nicest arms, 2016 edition.  It was a fun night at Mosaic Stadium on Friday night with the Roughriders first win of the season on a 53 yard field goal with about a minute left.  One of those magical moments when everyone was brought to their feet and didn’t stop cheering until the end of the game.

ugh...slugs-2

slugs – I’d never seen one before this weekend, now I’ve seen hundreds! GROSS!

bleeding hearts

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.

Anne Bradstreet ‘Meditations Divine and Moral,’ 1655

Another of my favourite spring flowers….
