October 30 - Fall ...

fall this year has been amazing ... October passed by with mostly clear blue sunny skies, warm temperatures and hey, i'm still running around in my birkenstocks ... no need for boots ... yet!

The streets and lawns are littered with beauty ...


I head off to the Playground of the Gods on the side of Burnaby Mountain ... it's always a fabulous place to walk and enjoy the views ... this day, it was so crowded with photographers it was crazy ... 

Fall also brings out the crazies in us as we try to get a decent shot of Honey in her Halloween costume ... this year, she was pouting big time so this is the best i got ...

and don't you just love the abundance of the season ... ornamental pumpkins and gourds ... squash of every kind ... 

summer roses start to fade ...

I love the colours of the season ... hope you are enjoying your fall ...

Trying something new and hooking up with a photoblog challenge at a 'lilhoohaa

Poor little honey. She looks sad, bless her. I love those ornamental gourds. I had some once. Many years ago. I dried them out and had them as ornaments, in a bowl. I haven't seen many of those around, in the UK.

Honey is a sweetie! Bless her, they don't much care for dressing up, do they? She looks as if she thinks her 'monkey' (which is what we call ourselves to the dogs) has gone mad! What breed is she?

Your leaves are wonderful!! Ours tend to go mostly yellow or orange or brown. We don't get many reds.

I'm always AMAZED at the sheer number of pumpkins when I come to the USA in the autumn. They are everywhere. I'm guessing from your post that it's the same in Canada.

I think you picked five good images for the theme and I like how they differed. The dog shot is cute, for sure. That top image is wonderful. Great stuff all around. Welcome to the challenge and hope to see you again!

Welcome to the monthly challenge. Nice collection of shots you've posted for the theme this month. I'm intrigued by the Playground of the Gods shot. Looks like carvings on old dead trees?

That's a nice collection of shots. I'm used to the first one. We had lots of falling leaves this fall. The Playground of the Gods looks like a fascinating place.

So glad you linked up to PJ's challenge to share your fall photos. I'm really intrigued by the Playground of the Gods image...off to learn more about that place via my favourite search engine.

Lovin' it! Honey is so cute. We have two fur babies and Tinkerbell goes "dogatonic" in a costume where Baby just does care what you put on her just as long as you feed her. Little piglet. Yay for Fall. Enjoy!~Ames
