Hurricane Kyle & Fall Foliage & Monty’s Swim

Hurricane Kyle is approaching the southern tip of Nova Scotia this evening. We are not in the direct path of this storm, so we should only get some rain and right now they are predicting 80 km/hr wind gusts over night and tomorrow morning. I am concerned that the US hurricane centre has the path of the hurricane going distinctly further east that the Canadian hurricane centre. Hopefully people aren’t caught off guard if the US centre is right.

I went out this afternoon and took some photos of the fall foliage before the wind blows the leaves off. The fall colours here are really more rusty than vibrant. We have very few maples around so we don’t have their bright colours.

Here is the view from me standing on our driveway looking across the valley. Notice the white farmhouse across the lake just recently painted their shed(?) bright orange. I’m wondering if the house is next 😀

I love these purple flowers that come out in our flowers gardens in the fall. I took some nicer photos of them last fall and had them framed for our guest room.

Notice the blueberry field across the valley turns a rusty red colour after harvesting.

Here is our house. The large cedar shrub on the left is too overgrown now so we plan to cut it out and plant something smaller.

Whatever these are, they are pretty flowers.

Bored Monty, wondering what I am doing.

Monty needed some exercise so I took him down to the picnic park at the lake one down from ours and let him swim for awhile. I threw bumpers for him and he swam out to fetch them, over and over, until the waves on the lake were starting to pick up with the wind gusts that were moving in.

  1. gorgeous fall shots, I may have to come back!

    Love seeing Monty retrieving just like Winger did.and I must say as he gets older he has that same LOOK about him. Good luck with this storm coming at you.
