World in October Part 2

A follow-up to my previous post, World in October–more October pics!

I like crows but birds are always so impossible for me to photograph. This was taken from quite a distance and I cropped it a lot afterwards, hence the weird composition.

Over the years, I’ve taken a million pictures of this tree from my living room window (well, not literally a million but you know what I mean) but I have never seen that many birds on its branches. Must have got lucky to catch them at a conference. Or maybe they’re just chilling after some big event, whatever that was.

World in October

Title of this post uses words from the famous Anne of Green Gables quote “I’m so glad I live in the world where there are Octobers”.

As is shown on this photo, the trees grow alongside the tram tracks, the tram stop is just nearby. These days, when I get off the tram and walk from the stop home, I take off my face mask when I’m on this path and I am hit with the smell of autumn. I would not notice it if I was not wearing the mask and I would not be wearing the mask if it wasn’t for the pandemic, so it’s interesting what these strange times make you discover.

Asters, as always. They normally grow in the front yard where I live but this summer the rental agency mowed it so there aren’t any 😦

I hope everyone reading this is having a good, or at least okay, October.

I haven’t got a favourite flower, I think they’re all great really. And it’s not like I even know flowers. I know roses and daisies and tulips and that’s about it. And asters.

Because the asters.

Also, it’s October! Over here the leaves haven’t turned yet but the weather’s been nice and sunny, what a miracle. It won’t last long I bet.
