Here’s some photos of the last of the seasons butterflies and a praying mantis as well as some October facts that you may or may not have known.
Hope you enjoy!
Some important or maybe not so important dates in October:
And some quotes…
“Just before the death of flowers, and before they are buried in snow,
There comes a festival season when nature is all aglow.”
“Rain in October means wind in December.” – Farmer saying
“When birds and badgers are fat in October, expect a cold winter.
When berries are many in October beware a hard winter.”
– unknown proverb
“All things on earth point home in old October: sailors to sea, travellers to walls and fences, hunters to field and hollow and the long voice of the hounds, the lover to the love he has forsaken.”
– Thomas Wolfe
“October. This is one of the peculiarly dangerous months to speculate in stocks in. The others are July, January, September, April, November, May, March, June, December, August, and February.”
Isn’t great knowing all this stuff…after the fact? Ah…better late than never, right? That’s the way it goes…now you know it for next year! And, actually, all these photos were taken in September, so it makes this so much better!!
And this, my friends, is what happens when you do something when you’re sick!! And life goes on!
“If ducks do slide at Hallowtide,
At Christmas they will swim;
If ducks do swim at Hallowtide
At Christmas they will slide.”
And a September quote for good measure…
“By all these lovely tokens September days are here
With summer’s best of weather and autumn’s best of cheer.”

Hope you are having a great day so far!
