Even though this is our sixth year in Australia, I still have a hard time thinking of October as a month in Spring. I start to think Halloween then I look outside at all the green grass, newly blooming flowers, and Australia’s gorgeous jacaranda trees (think purple cheery trees) and I am momentarily disoriented. Am I sure I have it right? Is it Easter? What month just ended? When is Christmas? It takes a few minutes to get grounded in the swirl of weather not matching holidays. I wonder when and if I’ll ever get used to it. But it does have it’s pluses – New Year’s Eve is amazing here and the kids get to trick or treat while it is still light out. I am still not used to the warm Christmas, but I do love all the outdoor events that surround the holidays.
So while most of my photographer friends are photographing falling leaves, autumn foliage, and Halloween pictures taken at dusk, our October is full of vibrant greens, new flowers and Halloween by daylight. As part of my “4 on 4” blog circle, here are four favourites from October…
“Reading” his favourite Chapter book
Favourite water tap | Favourite park
Happy Halloween | 8pm at the end of trick or treating
And that is it! Please follow along the blog circle to see what the talented Ti has been up to this past month. Onwards to November!
