The days are still wonderfuly warm this week -
once again Alberta has offered us an extended summer by hitting 23º to 26ºC degrees all week.
Clear blue skies all the way, and it's so hazy that I cannot see the mountains.
But the evenings are noticeably shorter and the sun is setting by about 8.15pm.
Temperatures at nightime are actually comfortable.
And the beautiful prairie autumnal yellows are everywhere.
I've mentioned before that our landscape does not really offer the red hues for the fall colours, as our growing zone does not support the maples and the variety of tree-life that show off the crimsons.
So we draw our colours mostly from larches and poplars - and then the majority of trees and shrubs will subtly hint at some oranges, but go straight to the yellows too.
Occasionally there is a specimen plant or tree that sparkles in someone's garden to remind us of the richer tones.
And throughout my neighbourhood,
we can observe colour in the berries.
Otherwise, it's nice to click on an Ontario or New England blog to get a red fix!
Have a peaceful autumnal week.
