Goodbye October

I always hate to see October leave. It's such a magical month and, for me, this one was more magical than others have been recently. Why? Instead of being hot and dry like the Octobers of recent years, with the nearly overwhelming worry of forest fires, it was cool and we had quite a few days of fog and rain. It felt like an October should feel, a time of transition, of endings, instead of a continuation of summer.
And, if you're attuned to it, the magic of Samhain/Halloween can be felt growing all through October.


  1. So glad you got rain! We also worry about forest fires and have been thrilled with our portion of precip this October.

  2. Vicki, I'm glad your fire danger is down.

    Thank you for the compliment on my photo, Cate, that made my day!

  3. It is sad to see October end. November seems a strange month really. Sort of like a holding zone until the next season. Lovely picture of the leaves.

  4. You're right, OC. And I'm afraid that the last of our glorious autumn leaves might leave the trees tonight as we're having high winds and rain is predicted. I'm glad you liked the picture!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
