Westmount Park

An early evening walk, with our dog, through Westmount Park.

Did you know that the beautiful colours in the leaves, that only appear in Autumn, are always present?  They are masked, during the summer, by the (green) chlorophyll that is reabsorbed into the trees before their leaves fall.
