Autumn has gradually been making her presence known throughout the province. These photos of the back garden were taken last week. I must get out to take another photos of this tree below as it is now even more captivating in glorious orange reds.
I love to flaunt photos of my favourite tree in my garden! This is a three-flowered maple which is absolutely stunning in autumn. Notice the foliage colour and the peeling bark. This is a beauty, easy care tree all year round!
I am linking up with Glenda over at Tootsie Time as we share our gardens, and flaunt our flowers. Swing by and say hi, won't you?

Is there anything more majestic than the Rocky Mountains of Alberta and British Columbia? Today's Sky Watch Friday photos were taken in Waterton Lakes National Park in southwestern Alberta. The southern-most portion of the park shares the US Border located in Glacier National Park. These photos are of the Canadian side.
Where were you sky watching this week?

We spent Canadian Thanksgiving in southern Alberta visiting family, attending a wedding reception, and soaking up the beauty of the Rocky Mountains in Waterton Lakes National Park. It was the best Thanksgiving that I can recall, sharing the holiday with precious loved ones. Today I am celebrating the beauty of autumn, sharing some of my favourite autumn nature photos in this mosaic, and joining Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.

It has been years since I had the pleasure of a visit to Waterton Lakes National Park in southwest Alberta and I have to say, as we drove through the entrance gate and into the townsite, I sighed with joy. It felt like going home! How I have missed the mountains!! I am including a few snapshots so you can see the grand beauty of my favourite Alberta mountainous park. Enjoy!
Do you have a favourite place that feels like coming home?
