Still working to get the wood split and piled. May take a few more days if the weather doesn't cooperate. This will be firewood for two years from now. Added a couple of filters on this pic to make it a little more interesting.

Two weeks ago we had great weather some days up to 20C+ days, sunny the best of fall weather. Last week cool wet with several mm. of rain, one day it never stopped there must have been at least 30mm that day even some large wet snowflakes. Now it will rain again tomorrow. The leaves are just about finished on the poplars now, the ground cover hasn't had enough frost yet to drop but its getting there. Here is a final picture of fall leaves taken at Leroy Lake with the camp boat still in the water.

Out to Leroy Lake for a paddle into a bog at the north end of the lake. I had been there earlier this summer and found some unripe cranberries. This being the Small Cranberry (Vaccinium oxycoccos) the berries are small, red and really don't have much of a taste. I have heard that a good frost may improve that.

Out near Everett Lake grouse hunting when all of a sudden a water bomber goes over my head no more than 3 or 4 hundred feet. I learned later that the fire was near Highbluff Lake north of Longpoint Lake. I headed down to the shore of Everett Lake to watch him fill up and take off just about every 10 minutes. Here's a couple of pics. the plane is a Canadair CL-415 made by Bombardier it can scoop up 6,130 L. of water in 12 seconds.
Yesterday I drove up near Highbluff lake and didn't see any smoke.

The day has finally come to stop looking after the grass, as I was cutting I looked up and saw this flower still in bloom. I drove around it and decided to take a picture of it later. By the time I got finished I forgot where the flower was and convinced myself that I had finally run it over with the mower. Today I'm going down to the shed and here I find the plant all in one piece and unscathed. Its only a Daisy Fleabane but it was the only and maybe last flower that I would see in bloom this year so here it is.
