Hello October!

Torrential rains are the welcome we get here from October...
You know the rain that you only see in the movies?
Pouring down and bouncing with bubbles off the road?
That's what it's been like here.
I subscribe to a site which sends me an "Irish Word of the Week"
hoping some day to find my way around a bit of the Irish language
and today's word is 'scaif', meaning 'hood'.
You will need yours today if you're around these parts.
Myself I welcome these days to fuel my
fires of creativity and leave behind the garden to sleep until spring.
(which, by the way still has a long way to go before it's put to bed!)
Yesterday I took the chance while there was a spell of 
non-pour on the horizon and went out to the 
forest to see the small and the large and what
goings on are going on in this world of mine...
Don't get me wrong...I welcome those crisp, autumn days, kicking
through the leaves but as some famous guy once said...
"You can't always get what you want,
But if you try sometimes,
You just might find,
You get what you need".

Oh what beautiful photos
Great little world you captured
Autumn is sumptuous

Oh, Kerry, I so understand this post and your words.
Thank you. Beautiful!
