It’s here! It’s here! My favorite month of the year.
In October we, along with the trees, start a new beginning and a new end. Things slow down, we get ready to settle into nighttime earlier, and we rest.
Did you know that when you see the brightest trees in the fall that that means they had a particularly harsh winter the year before? So the most beautifully colored trees have been through the hardest of times…. something to think about.
“October is about trees revealing colors they’ve hidden all year. People have Octobers as well.” -JM Storm
“I’m so glad to live in a world where there are Octobers.”- Anne of Green Gables
“Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter…”- Carol Bishop Hipps
The air is rising and the wind is wild with leaves,
we have had our summer evenings,
now for October Eves!” – Humbert Wolfe
Hope your October is all you ever imagined and more….. BOO!
