Woolly Bears, Asters, and Boots

Last weekend was a bit nippy. Definitely autumn is on its way. Huge waves are crashing the already battered shoreline, thanks to hurricane Irene. As I set out for a short ride, the brisk wind reminded me of how wonderfully lucky my husband and I were with weather on our Ottawa bike adventure. This morning I am contemplating wearing gloves.

A woolly bear caterpillar inched across the bike path.

Bumble bees extract nectar from the lovely purple asters, one of my favorite late summer flowers.

I was delighted to wear boots and tights again. It's like going shopping in your own closet!

I hauled out my stylish hounds tooth coat for warmth and those funny white glasses for eye protection.

Welcome, Fall!


  1. I love the idea of 'going shopping in your closet'. So true! Every autumn I can't wait to get my scarves and jackets out. As it's spring in Oz, I'm looking more to the bathers and favourite 'T's.

  2. Holy smokes! That coat and goggle combo is fabulous. Happy fall, indeed!

  3. Autumn is my favorite season! The colour, the clothes, the atmosphere! I enjoyed reading all of your Montreal to Ottawa adventures, but there is nothing like home is there?! :)

  4. So chic, love it. Happy Fall to you.

  5. PaddyAnne - I have to admit that I missed my children, but I am a wanderlust at heart. I would be more than happy to go on an extended tour again with my hubby.
