We have been having such a wonderful October here that I have been having the time of my life with my camera. Weekend before last, we had a fantastic storm with heavy gusts of wind. I was painting in my room at the time, but finally I just had to bundle up in warm clothing, put my Wellies on and head out with an umbrella.
Leaves swaying heavily in gusts of wind
I walked quite a few miles all on my own before heading back home. The gusts were so strong that my poor umbrella was hardly able to keep up. I was so mesmerized by the sound of rain pattering on my umbrella, the singing of the rain under the grove of oak trees, the swishing of the wind and the vibrant colours of the sky that I never realised how wet I got.
Fallen leaves all over the path
Even the dark asphalt took on the vibrant colour of the sky

After that brilliant storm over the weekend, we had a dry and hot Santa Ana. This weekend weather has cooled off again, and clouds are gathering in the sky. Eager to be outdoors, we decided to visit the local pumpkin patch this Sunday afternoon.
Orange is not the only colour
Flowers are not for Spring alone
The strange ones
The flamboyant ones
Happy Autumn Everyone!
