There’s no better time for a walk in a Canadian forest than autumn. Hamlin Grange, whose gorgeous photos of nature and gardens grace the pages of Twigs in My Hair, shares these pictures of a recent walk in the woods.

Most of the trees here are maples – of course! The maple leaf is the symbol on our national flag, we get delicious syrup from the sugar maple, and we use maple wood in furniture and flooring.
You’ll find a few birches, poplars and other kinds of trees in these woods too – the kind whose bark is best for carving initials and love notes.
But through slopes and gullies, by rocks or roots, maples abound.
