It’s difficult to believe that October is over already! Rain and wind has pretty much put an end to most of Autumn’s beauty around here, but I’ve taken some photos throughout October that I wanted to share of the last beauty we enjoyed.
Early in October, the marigolds were still blooming. These were planted to help protect our tomato plants from insects. They really outdid themselves this year! Not only were there no insect problems, the marigolds were simply beautiful!
The mornings were cool when I was out on my run down the street. I love this shot I got of the fog in an old apple orchard.
By the middle of October, colors were starting to reach their peak. This shot was also when I was on a run – my favorite view of the mountain that overlooks the pond below it. We can’t see the pond, but I think this was the morning I could hear the loons calling from there!
We have some beautiful bushes around the farm and yard. I don’t know what the first one is called, but the chickens love to jump up and grab berries off it!
Towards the end of the month the woods were opening up more and more with most leaves down. This one section has a type of tree that turns much later than others, and they were just finally turning color this last week.
We also wanted to share our favorite farm photo for the week. This is our white Araucana, Shelley. She seems to have found what she thinks is a perfect perch to sit and watch the rain!
Is Autumn’s beauty mostly over where you are?
