October to November

Hi friends,

Where did October go?  In a flash, it was gone.  Around the end of October, I refreshed my garden a bit cutting back things that were ready.  It was an absolutely beautiful October day with amazing blue sky. When the days turn gloriously crisp and cool, I try to savor the pleasure of sunlit afternoons by spending some time outdoors.

My mother’s old very used glider is softened by a really soft throw and a pillow for the season.

The sun is shining so brightly throwing beautiful light on parts of the patio.

The shadow of a tree emerges.

Trees in my backyard but leaves are falling so quickly.  I swept this patio and before I could take a photo, leaves were everywhere again.

My shrubbery is showing off its new color for the season.

A lone bloom that I captured. There are a few here and there.

Some of my shrubbery reminds me of the changing season.

They look so lovely in the sunlight.

Still lots of salvia for the hummingbirds but I have not seen them lately.

Softened the look of our weathered swing by adding cuddly items that beckon me to take a break.

Less than a month ago, the roses were still blooming.

November, the sister month to October, bids us to slow down, sit by the fire, and enjoy this beautiful season.  All that is required for a cozy nook is a good book, a cup of tea, and a warm throw tossed casually next to an overstuffed pillow.
