Autumn Leaves-October 1, 2012


Autumn is here with the cooler crisper air and the turning yellows, reds and orange hues of the leaves. A fall tradition here in the farming outskirts of Nanaimo is the Corn Maze. This is a very large maze made out of 12 foot tall corn plants shaped into a fantastic aerial theme, with a scavenger hunt within. Cap that off with a bonfire and the fall farmer's goods from squash varieties, pumpkins, clover honey and more...a break from the hectic pace of life.I hope you can enjoy the change of weather in your neighbourhood and get out and bond with mother nature and enjoy the traditions of the year.( And of course always celebrate with music and good company.)
