They seemed to gravitate towards the autumnal colours – reds and oranges  abound at this time of year!

They found all sizes and shapes of orange!

  1. Hello Agathe and Opal
    Our person showed man person this post and he’s gone off into a bout of homesickness for his native Vermont. Our trees and hedgerows here in Wales are turning to lovely shades of green, yellow, rust and brown but we don’t quite have the wonderous deep reds and oranges that your photos show…… there is a little discussion about changing continents going on and we worry we might not be included in such movement….

    • It sounds as though on the west coast of Canada, we have a Walesy coloured fall…most of the leaves around here generally just turn brown and fall off. Except for the evergreens, which we probably have more of around here than in your corner of the world. The oranges we found yesterday were singular and nothing like the sweep and extent of fall colours I have heard of in eastern Canada and the US.
