I find it hard to walk past a bench without taking a photo.  This one is located in the park where the flowers for the butterfly garden were growing this summer.

What a perfect place and time for me to sit and take a break.  Recently I reached two big milestones – 100 posts and 500 subscribers.

Thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time to look at my blog, to like my photos, to write a comment, to be a follower and a friend.  Blogging would be very boring without you.

Haunted Ship

Many people in Minnesota like to visit the haunted houses that are created for Halloween. These places are designed to be scary and fun.  In Duluth, they have a haunted ship.

The ship is flying the Jolly Roger.

There is a warning sign before you climb aboard the ship.  I think I will avoid this haunted ship. Too scary for me!

A Walk Around the Pond

Recently, I went for a walk around the pond.  I noticed that some of the trees are still very colorful and some have already dropped their leaves.

I really enjoyed looking at this maple tree.  It was a cloudy day and I liked the soft colors.

 

Forest

The forest next to the pond was quiet.  I found plenty of leaves on the ground and plenty of leaves still hanging on the trees.

And that is how October feels to me.  I am still hanging on to summer memories and at the same time, I am ready to let summer fall away.
