October often brings a wonderful mix ...


It is the month;
When the smallest breeze
Give us a shower
Of autumn leaves.
Bonfires and pumpkins,
Leaves sailing down -
October is red
And golden and brown.

- author unknown -


It is the time for getting organised for Autumn and Halloween
with a mixture of colourful pumpkins that you may have picked at a local pick your own farm.


It can be a good time to be young at heart!
Who can resist Winnie the Pooh, and this Autumn themed giphy
... not me


It is the month for wonderful soups
like this Celeriac and Bramley Apple Soup, so welcome on a cooler day

Such a cheerful Pooh Bear. Swishing through autumn leaves is a great way to stay young-at-heart :)

I love the colours which October brings but not the cooler weather, it's turned really chilly now. I can never resist Winnie the Pooh, one of my favourite characters.

Hello,:=) The picture of the autumn leaves in the water is lovely, and Poo Bear catching falling leaves is a jolly image. I checked out the recipe, because apple and celeriac soup looked good, but it is far too rich for my delicate stomach,...all that cream!! I wish I could eat it, but know I can't.

While I am counting down to the Summer Solstice (243 days) there's something to be said about crunching leaves underfoot, the Fall colors, and soup on a cold day.

For us, October is still very hot with only the occasional tease of cooler weather. Now, November - we might actually see some "fall" weather.
