Can't Deny It Any Longer~Bittersweet October

~October skies...
Can't deny any longer,~It's Autumn,
the light is diffrent, the colors, even the
smells & sounds..
even so, it's bittersweet

Autumn is a second spring, where
every leaf is a flower.
~Albert Camus

Savor Delicious Autumn,
for we all know what is around
the corner...

~Bittersweet October~
The mellow,messy, leaf kicking
perfect pause between the opposing
miseries of Summer & Winter.
~Carol Bishop Hipps

Catherine, as usualy, lovely photos. What you have written about the seasons is beautiful as well. I love fall, such a lovely time. Although at this time, I hate to say goodbye to my summer garden...but fall is so pretty. I don't usually like what follows tho. : )

Lovely pictures!
The whole nature is coloured in beautiful shades right now.
Every leaf is a flower... That`s true. :) The colours and the reflections are so bright and clear in October.
I just love the fresh smell of nature, these days.
Last night i was going for a long walk with my two girls.
Looking at the stars and the moon, breathing in the cold, fresh air.
Have a nice October! :))

Really beautiful colorful autumn can be and I love it when the leaves change their colors. Wonderful!

"Autumn is a second spring, where
every leaf is a flower." That's a beautiful quote. As always, fabulous photos. Did a little research and found out it may have been a white crab spider and I think they do morph. :) Lynn

Love the polaroid layout. I love fall, the transition, the smell, the light, even the rain except when I have to work out in it.

every leaf a flower, what a nice way of thinking.
I noticed some Rose Hips in your pictures, I was near out local bus station last week and came across some really big ones, the seeds were popping out. I picked one and was surprized it was ripe, I cleand the seeds away as best as I could and tasted. I can honestly say it was the sweetest I've ever tasted, I took a few to chew on around town. I will be collect more very soon.
