Wonderful October!

October is my birthday month, and I’ve always liked fall from an early age.

Well, sort of. As a kid, it’s hard not to be envious of all your friends who have summer birthdays and get swim parties. But we usually arranged to go camping at the beach around my birthday, so that was even better.

This fall, we’re in Arizona. In the fall, the desert looks like this.

…which is pretty much the same in the summer, winter and spring, too. Except in the spring there’s slightly more flowers.

I can dream about this …

I suppose I could drive a couple hours up to Flagstaff and take a look at their fall color.

Or I could go to the grocery store and check out the gourds and squash.

Their colors are so refreshing.

  1. Kim: Yes, but the desert never changes, that’s the problem. It’s just as pretty blue and green and red in midwinter as in midsummer. If I want seasons, I have to visit them. Or buy pumpkins. 🙂
