The leaves are spectacular RIGHT NOW in Digby County!
I know it can be tough to leave a warm cozy house these days and tromp around in the wet but it's so worth it - the leaves are all washed and shiny and, as painter Poppy Balser says, the grey skies gives the fall colours a lovely backdrop to glow against.
Another bonus of this weather is bright raincoats and rubber boots look awesome in fall photos!
I'm going to be out of the area for a few days so I'm hoping you can all help me out and share your photos of fall colours in Digby County for me and everyone to see.
Simply post them on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #fallingfordigby, or send me the photos in a private message or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I'll be collecting, like I did last year, on the #fallingfordigby webpage: Falling for Digby photo gallery.
Now get out there and enjoy those fall colours while they last!
The volunteers behind the Van Tassel Lake Trails want your feedback and ideas.
The Van Tassel Lake Trails Association is working with Trailflow (trail designers from Wolfville) on a master plan to help focus their efforts in the Town of Digby's watershed area.
The goal of the plan is to make sure they are creating a trail system that serves the needs and wants of the community and therefore, the first step is to ask the community what they want.
Trailflow has created a short easy survey with questions about your current trail use and how you would like to see the trails used in the future.
The survey has 15 quick easy questions and should take less than 5 minutes to complete.
The VTLTA is hoping to hear from as many people as possible - PLEASE: help us create a trail system that you will love and use often!
