There is something about October. If I had to pick a favorite month, it’s this one. Autumn is my favorite season and October is the month when the weather begins to feel like fall in Texas.
It’s a time for fall festivals, pumpkins, and scarecrows. Goldenrods, chrysanthemums, and spider lilies bloom. Trees change into beautiful arrays of color.
The days grow shorter as the sun rises and sets farther south. Clear blue skies replace the hazy ones of summer. The nights are crisp and cool. Bright constellations fill the night skies.
October is the time of harvest—the last cutting of hay fields usually occurs this month. Farmers and ranchers store the bales of hay for winter and any remaining crops are gathered.
October is a time for migrating birds—the cattle egrets that are common to this area in late spring and summer have departed. Ducks and geese fly overhead and rest on lakes as they journey south.
Yes, there is something about October.
