October is always the month of change. Autumn arrived on September 21 and October lets us now it is officially here. Brrr!
The leaves begin to fall, landing here there and everywhere.
Gorgeous colours appear. Daylight disappears, and it will soon be time to change the clocks back an hour, meaning it gets darker earlier so the days seem shorter.
The moon is on its way to being a full moon.
There were beautiful sunsets, but also lots of cloudy days and those days are getting cooler and cooler.
The honeysuckle vine in the trellis garden has just about lost all its leaves.
The bridge garden, newly created this year, is getting covered in fallen leaves which will help the plants survive over the winter, and start to decompose into the soil, eventually making it ricer.
And then along comes October 27, and guess what?
It started to snow.
First it was just wet stuff but after awhile it settled on the ground.
The first snow is always magical to watch and of course photograph.
I’m sure it caught lots of people off guard. Thank goodness it was all gone by the next day.
The moon looked rather spooky with a coloured aura around it.
The month finished very chilly but sunny. Remember to set your clocks back an hour tonight.
Our garden is in south eastern Ontario, Canada close to the Bay of Quinte.
2020 has been such an usual year so far, so who knows what will happen next.
