Naturally, not every autumn day looks like this: sunny and bright and warm and beaming with vibrant colour, but when it does, well, isn't it just pure paradise? You'd think I was wanderingthrough Ontario's cottage country, or maybe on holiday in the beautifulMaritimes, but believe it or not, this serene, pretty scene is just a short 15 minute stroll to
this stunning beauty, situated on a busy street; in fact, it's a highway! Aluxury condominium complex, inspired by the elegant French château style, it is a clean lined classic amongits bulky and awkwardly built counterparts that have popped upall over the Greater Toronto Areain the last five years, and a mere 10 minute ambleto
quaint heritage homes that have been turned into flourishing businesses on Main Street Unionville. On Saturdays, Liberty and I love to grab a specialty coffee and a freshly baked treat from one of the many cozy cafes and make our way to
Toogood Pond Park, literally, just steps away. Isn't it simply idyllic? We come here to simultaneously relax and recharge. Oh, and did I mention that there's all day, free entertainment for passersby?
We always manage to get front row seats, especially for the matinee performance. This particular interpretation of 'Swan Lake' is quite avant garde, commanding a standing ovation, every time. Of course, the leading ladies adore the attention; obviously, they are all prima ballerinas, are they not?
As talented as my feathered friends may be,
there is no doubt that the true stars of the season
note of the ruffles of pinks and purples on green.
Now, marvel at the multitude of
shadows and shades of this maple,
and finally, feast your eyes on the layers upon layers of colour and texture, like the blazing coral and crispy nature of this mature, mid-October character. Oh, Autumnal Architecture, alas, we must declare our passionate, lifelong love affair!
