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:

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.
