Over two weeks ago, Daylight Savings Time reverted back to Eastern Standard time. We now reach the late autumn -- the third and last phase of the season -- when the skies turn cobalt grey and temperatures plummet below freezing. Most of the leaves have fallen off the trees as this period prepares for the arrival of winter

To help embrace the cooler changes in weather and scenery, here are some images taken from Toronto Public Library on Pinterest to illuminate your spirits:
