Isn't it supposed to be autumn??
I always associate October with autumn so today being the first day of October I thought I would begin with a lovely painting, "Autumn Fantasy" by Kakichev U. I'm assuming that is the artist's name but I'm not sure. I found this painting online and thought it was just the right touch for my blog.
A few days ago HB had to run some errands and I went with him so I could stop at the library. As I sat there waiting for him to finish his appointment I realized that it was still summer here in our little town. We were parked at the edge of a small city park and there was no one around so I shot a couple of photos. Here is the little park....
On Thursday evenings during the summer they have music and crafts and food all around this park. It's called Thursday Night on the Square.
Just across from it is our little library. It isn't too bad but they don't always have everything I'm looking for and they aren't tied to the larger Los Angeles Library system. But I still manage to find a book or two now and then. This is the library....
If you notice, all the trees are still very green. I haven't seen any fall colors yet. Everyone has been posting nice photos of the leaves changing colors and all I have is green! But I'm not complaining. I could be up to my you-know-what in snow or something horrible like that!! At least we're having milder temperatures and the days are quite beautiful.
Our little town doesn't have a lot of excitement most of the time but for us that's ok.
