Weekend Fun

   It is already the weekend and we are happy to join Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by our pals 15 & Meowing and McGuffy’s Reader.
• October is the perfect time to sit on the back porch and enjoy our morning coffee while the dogs play.
• Halloween means carloads of trick or treaters will be descending upon our neighborhood dressed in fun costumes and cruising for candy.
• Every October, I look forward to the leaves turning red and gold.
• My experience with the supernatural world is only in my dreams and when pets that have left me make themselves known.
 
We are also joining Da DB Boyz for Flower Friday and their new little sister, Rosy is the host!

  6. Ghostwriter just cut down the last of the browned leaves of our day lilies to prepare for winter. We had a few of those purple flowers this summer. But they're long gone too. Glad you can enjoy these flowers where you are!

    1. Our day lilies keep blooming but it still feels like August here so that's probably why.

    1. Thank you! Actually, we don't have as many trick or treaters as we used to when our kids were young. We had over 1,000 back then. Dominos even set up a pizza truck at the corner to sell pizzas to the parents! It was great fun.

  13. October is a great month. Here it is Spring...just warming up enough to sit outside with coffee and book, but cool enough for walks.

  14. October is such a nice month, isn't it? Your flowers are gorgeous. I had one daylily open last week....I think it was a bit behind the times but it was fun to see it when most everything else is starting to die off.
