Happy October!

I had a neighbor that always told me marigolds excel in the Fall and for the way they've filled out beautifully in the last few weeks, I'd have to agree. Here Pinky is sporting some of Fall's finest!
Over cast skies and misty morns,
Crackling fires and cider warms.
Twilight brings an eerie feel,
Orange leaves crunch beneath the heel.
Bats fly high all through the night,
Everyone shivers at that sight.
Revel in October's magic:@)
Have a happy day!

I'm joining:
Seasonal Sunday

  1. Hi Lynnie! Oh, I like the additions to your header - football, leaves and hotdogs! I love it.
    Now your little piggy planter is darling and those are some beauty flowers!
    Have a great weekend and be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  2. You wrote that? Very clever lady.
    I love October. In Canada Thanksgiving is in October. I can't wait for that turkey dinner. Mmmmm.
    You will be happy to know that no pigs will be harmed.

  21. Hi Lynn, I like your cute arrangement. Marigolds are one flower that even I can grow. They don't seem to need as much attention as many other flowers in my garden each year. Hope you liked the buttons. Have a great week at work.------Shannon

  22. Marigolds are a perfect color for Fall, but I don't like them in summer. Clashes with my color scheme!

  24. Marigolds are pretty neat. They're so sunny all Summer long, but perfectly Fall too.

  30. Hard to believe it's already October, but I do revel in its magic. Today that is likely to mean sitting in front of the fire in my PJs as it is a most gloomy day outside.

  46. Your marigold bouquet is so delightful and pinky looks quite happy surrounded in fall fashion.
    The first thing I noticed was your header...all set for fall. Love it!
    Here in So. California we don't really feel fall until the end of October. We had an extremely cool summer but this week they say it will be quite warm. My roses are loving it...not quite the fall look yet. Hope you are having a great weekend.
