Ottawa in the Autumn

blue bar

My favourite season in Ottawa is autumn. The brilliant colours of the oaks and maples never fail to lift my heart. The extreme heat and humidity of mid-summer is past. Daytime temperatures are pleasant. Nights are crisp and cool. The sky is a deep and brilliant blue never seen at other times of the year.

Even the dogs love autumn. They tunnel through the piles of fallen leaves with their noses, searching out odorous treasures. They love bounding through the mounds of leaves along the paths and under the trees. The sounds of the migratory birds flying overhead excite them. The increased bustle of the squirrels, preparing for winter, drives them wild.
