vintage and contemporary postcards and stamps from around the world

red, yellow, orange

There are lots of fall colours in this fantastical beast 'coq licorne'. The original was painted by Jean Dallaire in 1952. This unicorn rooster looks a bit frighteningly ready for Hallowe'en!
Or perhaps you'd prefer to stay indoors and play with these Russian toys; one of which features a calmer, traditional rooster.

For some real fall colours, you could take a drive. These pom pom looking trees are shown at the back of the Parliament Buildings. One rarely sees such round, solidly coloured trees.
For a more realistic autumnal view you go for a walk in the woods where you might come across birches, like these painted by Tom Thomsom in 1915 which evokes a chilly, overcast day.

I love the Canadian stamps. Some beautiful landscapes on them! Autumn colours are my favourite.

A rather piratical rooster, I like that. I love the colours in the parliament stamp.

My tree is nowhere near as beautiful as that on your Canadian stamp.

Great fall colors, by the way.
