Oakville Area Trees Put On a Magnificent Display!

Autumn in.......

Oakville!

As I Drive along tree-lined streets in Oakville and area this time of year I find myself singing 'Autumn in New York'; especially on sunny days when the bright oranges and crimsons of the maple and oak leaves stand out even brighter against the vivid blue sky.

The Oakville and Mississauga regions have been experiencing one of their most colourful fall seasons in a long time with the cold nights and warm sunny days resulting in very colourful trees.

Here in the Oakville area of southern Ontario, many of the trees have yet to lose their leaves.

I've hiked quite a bit over the past month at many of our local conservation areas and have seen some absolutely beautiful sights.

Here are a few of them:

Pumpkin Creatures at Kelso Fall into Fall

Many celebrations have been held across our beautiful province to herald in the colourful, crisp fall days. Pumpkin creatures have made their appearances at local gatherings and on many a verandah. These festive creations were seen at one of Kelso Conservation Area's 'Fall Into Fall' weekend events.

With the abundance of trees and natural areas, Oakville and surrounding regions are a destination of choice for visitors with an appreciation of the beautiful province we are blessed to call home.

Local residents show great appreciation by visiting the many conservation areas and provincial parks as well as taking regular walks along Oakville's many beautiful trails.

Just a few more reasons to consider the Oakville region when considering a move to a new area or country!

Jo-Anne:  What wonderful photos.  We are seriously considering a retirement move in our future and the Niagara area, especially due to the escarpment, is one of the most attractive places to move.

Jo,

Great pictures! I think that now we are just past the peak. A tree across the street turned bright red. I saw a neighbour taking pictures and I thought that was a good idea. One week went by, and absolutely all of the leaves have fallen. So, take these pictures when you get a chance.

Jo, 

Great pictures!  I love a beautiful autumn day.  We are enjoying a beautiful autumn this year.  Leaves falling left and right, so it will be fleeting.

All the best, Michelle

Hi Kathy,

As an annual member of Halton Conservation, I try to visit one of the six areas at least once or twice every couple of weeks. We're very luck here to have such beautiful areas to visit.

You're a bit further north-easterly than Oakville.....so I'm not surprised that you're further ahead into winter. A few weeks ago I was visiting my parents in Belleville/Quinte region and most of their trees were already bare.

Hi Valerie,

We have a bit warmer temperatures here than Ottawa, and perhaps not as much snow, however the Rideau Canal has always been one of my favourite historical sites in Ontario. The Niagara region would be a lovely retirement choice.

Brian,

I think you're right. Im noticing this morning, as I look out the windows from my desk, that most of the leaves have fallen. We still have two little Maples in the backyard that have quite a few burnished orange leaves left, however one big wind........

hi Michelle,

Thanks for stopping by!

I didn't realize that your area experienced autumn too....do the leaves turn orange and red?

Jo, the leaves are great this year. I get to see them as I drive up to Milton for a job. My cousin has a PH condo on Marine Drive and she has a magnificent view of the tree tops this time of year.

Jo, there's probably no other place in the world where autumn is as striking as it is in Ontario. Beautiful photos.

Hi Janice,

The drive to Milton is gorgeous.....

Your cousin must have a beautiful view year-round. I love seeing the snow softly falling from a high level and the lights over the city at night.

Hi John,

I think you're much further north than us.....I imagine you get a lot of snow too. We don't seem to get too much here in the Oakville area.

Wow - look at all that colour!

I was a little disappointed with the view outside my window this year - not nearly as vibrant as last year and it seemed the leaves had just changed and they were blown down LOL
