"I'm so glad that I live in a world where there are Octobers." Anne Shirley

I was planning on doing a picture a day for October but I'm just not that organized. I shot a bunch and here are some of my favorites.

October 2 was warm enough to take a swim at Rye Beach NH.

I have no idea what these amazing berries are called, love how they transform from green to dark purple. 10/3/13

Cranes Beach 10/4/13

marsh grass, so lovely

This fellow is a month early, he looks worried.

October 5....This was a "stop the car" shot!

October 8  Minuteman Bikeway,  Bedford MA

leaves and reflections, Minuteman Bikeway

October 14 sunset

October 16, Foggy morning hike in the Middlesex Fells

October 17 my backyard...Cosmos with bee

Bittersweet, beautiful, invasive and poisonous.

I love these Asters, great color and they bloom in mid October.

Lucky rocks, folklore says if you find a rock with a stripe around it, you will return to the place again.
I always pick one up just to make sure.

October 18 Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, Concord MA

Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Henry Davis Thoreau are also buried here.

New England stonewall

I'm guessing this is a Linden Tree. Love the light and how it's catching the neighboring pine needles as they drop.


October 19  Gloucester MA

October 21 Horn Pond, Woburn, MA.

Blue Heron

October 27

Oak leaves have so much character and strength.

Potpourri A combination of incongruous things.
Art, humor and stuff that caught my eye


Amusing that the end of the rainbow, sight of the proverbial "pot of gold", is a gas station.
Cue Beverly Hillbilly's theme song.

Newport, Co Mayo

favorite beach  Mulranny, Co Mayo

maybe my favorite sign...

The buildings constructed using these stones were beautiful.


We stayed here in Westport, Helm Apartments...favorite entrance for sure.

Our introduction to Hurling...Go Clare! Great rainy afternoon entertainment.
The game ended in a tie, players shook hands, what?
Rematch was played yesterday and Clare came away with the cup!

more signs....

I love this photo....

Famine Monument


spider webs and blackberries, both frequent sights.

Bunnratty Castle
