October Inspiration 1: Storm Approaching by Sara Harley
Clouds fascinate me. One evening this summer, I stood outside
with my camera as a storm approached. Thunder in the distance,
the wind was blowing the clouds in a fast moving kaleidoscope.
I was happy capturing a series of abstracts created by Mother Nature.

October Inspiration 2: Aspens in Autumn by Helen Eaton

Aspen, Birch, Cedar, Dogwood, Elm, Fir, Gingko, Hickory, Indigo, Juniper, Kapok, Locust, Maple, Nectarine, Oak, Pine, Quince, Redwood, Sequoia, Tulip, Umbrella, Viburnum, Walnut, Xylosma, Yucca, Zelcova

I am soothed when surrounded by trees. True, there are trade-offs… no horizon lines with sunrises and sunsets, no big sky to watch storms roll in or to gaze at entire constellations. But, I’ll choose the cozy comfortable call of the forest every time.

October Inspiration 3: Purrfect Companion by Sara Harley
Love them or not, there is no denying that cats
have unique personalities. Myrtle Ertle Oickle
adopted us seven years ago. Lap time with her
is one of my daily joys.

October Inspiration 4: Bippity Boppity Pumpkin  by Helen Eaton
It’s October! 
You know what that means!
Pick pumpkin spice to sprinkle on your tasty pastry crumbs.
Put pumpkins on your porch beside your pot of purple mums.
Pare a pretty pumpkin for your jack-o-lantern party.
Pile pumpkin pie upon your pot luck plate to end a meal that’s hearty.
Paint a picture of a pumpkin patch that shows the orange crop.
Pose a scarecrow for a photo with a pumpkin for his prop.
