As November comes to an end and the weather gets colder, trees lose most of their leaves and snow is a real possibility, it's my last chance to share the last colours and lights of Autumn.
This first set of photos is from a walk we took in and around Toronto University, a fantastic place to go and enjoy a bit of urban nature, with all the yellows, oranges and reds we needed amidst both traditional and modern architecture (and, on top of that, we stumbled upon a sale of old books at Harry-Potteresque building, brilliant!).
This second set is from the last sunny day where you could have gone out in just a T-shirt. Granted, it was about 9 degrees, BUT that included the wind-chill factor, and the days had been rather gray and rainy, so when the sun came out in all it's glory and the temperature was really quite high for the season, all of Toronto took to the streets, parks, and the harbourfront (where we went) and simply basked in the warm suns rays, strolled, and were simply happy. And we had a small surprise too: at the Harboufront Centre there was a Mexican Day of the Dead festival, where we found traditional Pan de Muerto (Bread of the Dead) and calaveritas de azúcar (sugar skulls!). Awesome!
So, I guess it will soon be time to start posting about snow and cold weather but, in the meantime, it was a nice, sunny, red Autumn, as it should.
