A Season of Crimson

Crimson red is probably THE defining colour of autumn, here in Canada, at least in southern Ontario & Quebec. It is, after all, a red maple leaf, on our flag, and it is during this season that we see that fiery, intense colour festooned along the roadsides and through the forests of the area.

The intensity of the brilliant reds during this season are a stark contrast to the cooling weather. It is nature's last shot at brilliant colour, until winter's icy grip steals most of it away!

It may be the dying embers of a long, hot season, but it is glorious, indeed!
