October memories


with its rich azure skies

clouds of marshmallow fluff

leaves of brilliant hues

when foliage sheds flawless exteriors

critters munch and crunch 

harvest is plentiful

filled with pumpkin-y decor

bright faces appearing at the door

splendor galore!

Autumn is giving lavish birth
beguiling me with its wild mirth!

My Blogging Business Artisan team on etsy hosts a new Challenge every month.  The purpose is to encourage us to explore our creativity, to stretch our imaginations.
Pam of Magdalene Knits gave us the following Challenge for the month of October:

"There are so many delightful and frightful topics for October.  A time when there is a change in the air, fresh pumpkins, donuts, apple picking, pumpkin patches, and a time of 'bewitching!'  I have so many wonderful memories of these.  Share your October memories."

QUESTION:  What inspires you to create?
