October has much that appeals to the senses.  For today’s Throwback Thursday, I am revisiting an October post from 2015 when I was experimenting with apps and photos I had taken or had permission to use on this website. I was at the very beginning of my art journey and just having fun trying different options within the apps.

October is one of my favourite months.  However, I am not the only one who looks forward to this first full month of fall…

“I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery.

October is….

Crunchy tart apples freshly picked

fall activity - apple picking

Sweet scent of fruit pies and crumbles,

Fallen leaves swirling in the blustery autumn breeze,

Grey rain filled skies over crimson trees,

Rows of pumpkins in farmers’ fields…

fall activity - pumpkins

Children’s rosy cheeks and warm fingers in new mittens,

Firewood aroma wafting in the air during neighbourhood walks,

Longer nights and shorter days,

The warmth of home after being outdoors.

October is a feast for the senses!

For another post about October see Catching a Leaf Mid Air. (2017)

I agree with Anne…The world would be a sad place without October.
