“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." [Letter to Miss Eliot, Oct. 1, 1841]” ― George Eliot
Hope all my Canadian contacts had themselves a happy (and delicious) Thanksgiving Day.  This long weekend passed by so very quickly.  I did, however, manage a brief but welcome 45 minute walk by the river today.  Photos to follow in the days ahead as time allows.  Meantime, there’s always this glimpse of autumn’s splendour from the site of Terrasses Bonsecours along rue de la Commune and the Old Port.  

Uhhhmm, yeah, that’s better, got just too excited there didn’t I?  Thanks luxlit, that was lovely, eh!    :)

“I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold, and leaves of gold there grew: Of wind I sang, a wind there came and in the branches blew. Beyond the Sun, beyond the Moon, the foam was on the Sea, And by the strand of Ilmarin there grew a Golden Tree.” 
J.R.R. Tolkien ~ The Lord of the RingsFrom Monday’s brief 45 minutes by the river… I constantly marvel at how lucky I am to live right across the street from this gorgeous spot. That’s Ile-des-Soeurs (Nuns’ Island) in the background.

The tree that thought it was a marigold - 2009 © Sharon Boswall (iammacgirl on Flickr)
I don’t know why, but this tree just made me happy that day because it seemed to me it was in a good place in the midst of all those marigolds and I was taken by its simple beauty. I wish I could remember where in the city I took this. I’d like to re-visit and see how big it’s become and and what secrets it might reveal. Mostly, I would just like to think it is still happy and still in the midst of an abundance of floral friends.
