Happy October

October is one of my favorite months.  We don’t get cool weather and beautiful fall color here in central Texas (Not usually).  Just saying the word October conjures thoughts of hot chocolate and spiced cider, hay rides and pumpkins.  Ghost and goblins and trick or treaters.  It doesn’t matter if it’s 90 degrees outside, knowing it’s October makes it fall.  We are already decorating the house for Halloween and putting up the fall wreath.  I hope you are have a beautiful, magical first day of October.


Captured Moments – Fall color

Yesterday was the first day of fall in the northern hemisphere.   Here in central Texas, we do not have the stereotypical fall colors unless we have cool wet weather.  I went back and looked through some photos from previous years and found September fall color.  Grasses and a few from trees and vines.  🙂  Hey, I will take what fall color I can get.

Autumn Dragons – Sculptures

Now we go from tiny and small Dragon sculptures to the larger than life Sand Dragon by Ricardo Breceda

This is pushing my definition of a dragon- more of a serpent – but there is no doubt this is an amazing sculpture.  Look at that head. Gorgeous!
