Botanical Gardens in Autumn  
I went out with both Luke and Tessa to the Botanical Gardens on Monday (October 10th, 2011) which was Thanksgiving Day in Canada and it was the only time when all three of us could meet up... cherryblossom

The main reason that I wanted to go was to see the Botanical Gardens in the fall to see all it's pretty and gorgeous autumn colors leaf



There was no other time period we could go since I couldn't go on the following weekend and most of the leaves would have already have fallen come the last week in October.

     

     

BUNNIES! They're shaped like bunnies in a cabbage patch~! *hops around*

     

These particular photos were taken in the building of the Japanese Garden. Isn't it pretty?

     

     

The other reason why I wanted to go was to attend the Pumpkin Ball which is where a whole bunch of decorated pumpkins would be on display! Like this "Angry Birds: Trick of Tweet" pumpkin that won Tessa and my approval (Luke was at a loss) !?



There were so many pretty decorated pumpkins there! I took a whole bunch of pictures of them, but only decided to post  an additional six of them since there was easily over at least fifty other decorated ones.

     

     

     

Lastly, it was to also attend the Lantern Festival which pays tribute to China’s first Emperor, Qin Shi Huangdi and his impressive cavalry. The theme this year is “The First Emperor's Procession” horse



Most of the pictures that I took of the lanterns were during the daytime, however I did take some pictures of them at night as well... But there were so many people attending that I wasn't able to get closer to take more pictures and had to take them from a distance once it was night.

     

     

     

          

     

     

     

This stone table set will now hold fond sentimental memories for the three of us *cues Pokemon theme song* melody

This place is terribly beautiful! I love the colour of the trees, and of course, ANGRY BIRDS!

I KNOW RIGHT?! Autumn is easily my favorite season and the only one that I'm most active in <3

Luke didn't know what Angry Birds were so we were amused when we tried to explain it to him. He just continued to give the both of us a quizzical look X3

He's only a year older than the two of us. I didn't bring my iTouch so I couldn't show him the game and Tessa doesn't have an iTouch/iPhone but she knew what it was.

I am a crazy addict of Angry Birds! Although I don't have the game dl-ed anywhere except in google chrome, I hijack my friends' smart phones to play it (effectively levelling up for them!)

P.S. I LOVE that first pumpkin! Is it all carved or are things attached to it?

You mean the Angry Birds one or the one with the honeycomb+bees?

In either of them, they're painted over and then have things glued on to them :3
