Fall Pumpkins

No comments
 I spied lots of Pumpkins on display as far as the eye can see right at Whittamore's Farm in Markham Ontario. This is the season for pumpkins as big as you can imagine which can be used for display or for eating to cook a vegetable dish, soup and famous for a pumpkin pie. For those who do not like pumpkins, an alternative is the numerous apples on the farm which makes a really delicious apple pie topped with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. Even the mums are so colourful and huge this season. Fall is just so delicious and pretty.

Fall Colours

 Fall colours are all around us from Toronto to Pickering to St Jacobs Farmers Market. There is an explosion of orange, yellow, fuchsia, pink, red, white and lots of greens. We see these colours on the flowers, pumpkins, peaches and on the apples to make apple fritters at St Jacobs Farmers Market. Fall is a season of celebration on food, fashion and most all on nature. Even the sunflowers looked so happy. 

Happy Thanksgiving

 This long weekend in October is Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Its a time to celebrate together with family and friends over dinner with the turkey with stuffing, mashed potato and pumpkin pie, although my favourite is the pecan pie made with Canadian maple syrup. It is the perfect time to indulge and enjoy the food together with family. One of our favourite places to visit is the Niagara On The Lake, near Niagara Falls. This is the perfect place to visit during Spring, Summer and Fall. There is Main Street to stroll for shops, wine tasting and filled with many restaurants offering local produce on their menus. We enjoy visiting the truly Canadian shop of  Greaves Jams that produce and sell jams made from local produce like strawberry, peach, grapes from nearby wineries and fruit farms  They even sell the famous ice wine jelly. After shopping, join one of the local wineries tour to learn about making wine and best of all enjoy the wine tasting. We also enjoy visiting one of the Vintage Hotels for brunch. We are thankful for this beautiful country Canada as we celebrate our 150th year of Confederation this year. We are thankful that we Canadians are compassionate towards others and our environment. We love, enjoy and take care of our beautiful and prosperous country. 

Feeling For Fall

 Here comes Fall eventhough the temperature here in Toronto was in the 30C in the last few days, it felt like summer. A stroll along Bloor-Yorkville during the weekend of Open Streets Toronto showcased the store windows' Fall collection. There are lots of reds, burgundy, even pink, black, plaid and lace in the clothes, shoes and accessories. Which colour will you wear for Fall? The Open Streets Festival promotes a clean city and clear air with no car traffic on the road. We were free to enjoy the streets traffic and car free. More space and time to enjoy the store windows and shopping for Fall.

Fall Style: Chanel

I see beauty, glamour, elegance and class every time I visit the Chanel windows and the pop-up store inside Holt Renfrew on Bloor St, Toronto. For this Fall season, Chanel introduced new bags, like the Gabrielle bag and classic Chanel clothes in black, red, winter white, metallics, blues, orange and burgundy. Everything in this collection are so inspiring and highly covetable. Chanel's Fall Collection never fails to inspire and make us dream.
