October is my favorite month. It's a magical month. The weather is crisp, the sun is still around and the days have gotten just a little shorter allowing for maximum enjoyment of bonfires and hayrides. It's before the holiday season; before the constant hammering of holiday advertisements and sales. It's the month we retreat into our own little compartments; our homes that we seal up and have prepared for winter. I love foliage in October. Most of it is dying, dropping leaves and petals or shriveling up; but it's all so full of color, shape and texture.
Here's some of what I see in my October landscape:
