Three Trees

Late Autumn in the Garden

Viburnum, Amelanchier canadensis and a sour cherry tree – beyond them a Chinese grass, the species of which I forget. A visually interesting time of the year in the garden with the different coloours on the same date.

Katsura in Autumn

Katsura Tree

This tree was planted by us 20 years ago under the impression that it would only grow to half the height it has achieved.  Very please we were wrong as it is magnificent – especially in the fall as the colours mature to bright yellow. In the half light of morning and evening (this was early morning) it starts to seemingly glow from within.

An Ancient Lakeshore

Once there was the sea …

A few thousand years ago as the last age was melting, what is now Montreal was mostly at the bottom of a huge sea. Gradually the water levels fell and islands appeared. This bank was once a lakeshore shelving down into the water and this forest is now growing on what was once a sandy beach.

This seashore is in the Arboretum.
