Near Sweetman’s Garden

The old CNR railway roadbed ran beside Sweetman’s Garden and was the reason that the garden came into existence. The right-of-way was much wider than required for the tracks and Murray Sweetman began to use the vacant land beside the tracks as a garden. Over the years the garden became quite extensive and was a place to marvel at and escape from the neighbourhood for a bit of “quiet time”. An oasis of calm.

The rails were removed years ago and despite unsuccessful attempts on the part of the City’s Mayor and Council to sell the land for development, it is still there today. Perhaps not as glorious as it once was, but still an oasis of calm nonetheless.

Late August Afternoon

The weather has turned away from Summer.

Cooler these days, and more comfortable.

The strong greens of August are replaced with wilder colours of Autumn.

The inevitable march of Nature cannot be slowed or prevented.

Just give in and accept it.

Autumn Passes Quickly

It seems that it has taken forever for the leaves to start their colour change locally.

And then all of a sudden they changed with a “whoosh”!
