October's Fresh-Cut Friday

 October is finally here!
There's something about this month that I simply love.  To me it is actually the beginning of autumn: cool weather, hot apple cider, candy corn, Halloween, leaves turning, pumpkins and getting ready for winter.

 I cut the last of the Black Eyed Susans from our garden and made a simple little flower arrangement to welcome October.
 The painting is Hubby's of Lake Superior on the North Shore.
It makes me feel sad to see them bloom for the last time, but one good thing about this flower it's that its bloom lasts for a long time.
I added 2 of the last hydrangea blossoms that had not yet started to turn brown.


 What pensive beauty  autumn shows.
~William Wordsworth
