October was a month full of changes. The weather went from warm and dry to cold and rainy. The flowers are all spent and the vegetable garden is mostly put to bed for the year; just a few carrots, beets, and leeks remain.
Most of the leaves are gone from the trees, except from our Linden. It's an odd tree, that one. The leaves are slow to change, then they do all at once. They are slow to fall off, then they do, all at once. I expect that tomorrow that tree will be bare.

We snapped a few photos mid-month to document just how fast the change was occurring. This past Wednesday we were treated to a migration, probably of Starlings, who thought that tree was a good resting place.
We think that, too.
