Cheesy Corn Muffins - Oct. 22, 2014
Eastbourne, England - Oct. 22, 2015
October!  It has always been a special month, the weather here in Georgia starts to cool down and the leaves change into gorgeous yellows, reds and browns. (Last year, we were in England in October...and it was lovely there too!)  I thought it would be fun to show you the photos from the same date in October.  

Sending best wishes to Scriptor Senex (John) who not only had a birthday this weekend, but also celebrated the arrival of TWO grandchildren! Talk about October being a special month!
  You may send your best wishes to Scriptor and you may find his blog just here!  Cheers, John! I am very happy for you and Jo and all your family!

    1. I will tell Richard that you like that photo. He is always admiring your photos too!
      I will try to remember how I made those muffins, any time I make something good, it is by accident! LOL.

    1. I think October can be chilly in England sometimes, but when we were there, it was warm and sunny. x

    1. There's something almost kind of spiritual about that photo.

    2. I always ask Richard to take any photos of me from a distance, the further away the better! :-)

    1. We were grateful we could get out for that walk this weekend, not been able to walk as much lately!
      My corn muffins are not as good as my Dad's but hey, they look good! :-)

  8. Oh those golden Autumn leaves are wonderful. What a clever idea looking back at the same date each year. I love the blue heron - a great shot. Do you go to England every year?

    1. We go to England as much as we can, and lately, we have been going once a year. Wish we could go more often!

  10. Congrats indeedd to John. October is going to be a very busy month for him now. My favourite part about October, other than the leaves changing, is that all the squirrels come out of hiding. I've seen more squirrels in the past few weeks than I have all year.

    1. If you love squirrels, I will send you all the squirrels from my yard, they are here year round. I think the grey squirrel is not native to Britain and is becoming a problem there. Truth is, it is a pest here but no one wants to admit it!

  14. Beautiful photos. I love October--it is probably my favorite month--well, I love September, too. We will lose the last of our leaves this week, I think. Enjoy yours while they last. xo Diana

    1. Our leaves usually peak the first week of November here. They seem to be better when we have had rain and we have had hardly any of that!

    1. Bit sad to take photos when you have made good looking food, but I am not a good cook so you won't see my food very often! Those muffins were good though.

    1. I love the photos that you have shown us when you visit Illinois. It must be really hard to live in such an area as yours, the beautiful beaches of Hawaii! LOL!
