Another great topic from Nancy Merrill Photography in her weekly photo challenge: OCTOBER.
I have felt that October was the best month to recognize transitions…at least in my part of North Carolina. We can have quite warm temperatures followed by much colder days. We move from baseball to football. And the changing colors around us leave no doubt that fall has arrived.
There is a small community in Charlotte–Chipping-Campden–whose design was inspired by an English village. The homes are situated around a central gathering place and gardens. One highlight of the October garden there is this maple tree, almost perfect in shape and drop-dead gorgeous in color.
