it's been getting down to the high 30's/low 40's the past couple of nights.
staying pretty much in the 60's during the day.
(yay! flannel shirt weather! i love it!)
darkness lasting longer in the morning...
and coming earlier in the evening.
daytime bugs & critters take advantage of the sun's warm rays.
flowers are still blooming...
butterflies are still feeding
|Gulf Fritillary on Blue Mist|
there are still plenty of dragonflies
lizards & frogs soaking up the sun's warmth
a lone mushroom not ready to give in to the cooler weather
and now...the moon.
giving in to the power of the magical moon.

"Have you ever danced with the Devil by the pale moon light? I always ask that of all my prey."
doesn't it look like the moon is wearing a pine needle hat...
|5:07am - oct 30 2012|
inspired by the moon and the skeleton trees of winter...
here's a note card i painted with acrylics...
enjoy the scents of nutmeg or mint
the taste of apples, nuts & wine
the feel of smooth black stones, obsidian or jet
the colors of black, orange, white, silver or gold
black cats, bats & jack-o-lanterns
deadly nightshade, mugwort, sage, mandrake, oak leaves
celebrating the lives of those that have died...family, friends, pets. the spirits of the dead. darkness~fire~hope~new dreams~new beginnings~out with the old~in with the new
Happy Samhain ~ Happy Halloween
stay cool & be safe
especially those who have been dealing with the wrath of Sandy...
my thoughts are with you.
