I feel really fortunate to live a short walk from Sam Smith Park in Toronto. I wandered about the park for a couple hours this afternoon, taking in the sights.
I might have missed this black-crowned night heron if I hadn’t seen it in the air, landing on the shore of the pond quite a way from me.
Witch hazel is in bloom and it will keep blooming right into December. Seeing some is always a happy autumn highlight.
The kite people were out today. At one point there were 5 or 6 of these daredevil kite surfers taking advantage of a brisk breeze today. The lake must be so cold, but I guess the suits they wear keep them warm.
