Oktoberfest 2014 : A Blog Hop

Without further ado... *drum roll* :
my Autumn Splendor in PHOTOS
(I'm a photographer, too- you can see my photography for sale in my ArtFire shop by clicking here).

Here is a full moon photo taken in September...

 A crescent moon & sunset!

Some Mums (Chrysanthemums)

More Mums.

The newest addition to the flower "family". (Yes, more Mums!)

I don't know what this flower is called, but it sure is pretty and was still blooming mid-September.

The tree to the right was getting just a touch of yellow.

 A hibiscus that was really happy in the garden this year. Also was blooming like mad in September!

Plume grass.


Another flower I don't know the name of...

This was the MOST GORGEOUS and INTENSE sunset EVER.

The leaves on the burning bush were just starting to change.

Fiery sunlight/sunset!

October Full Moon.

At last, something I actually made! (Though the photo is cool too). These are jack'o'lanterns I made from polymer clay. You can get them in my shop on Etsy.

A walk I took mid-October with my Mom and her doggie, Odie.

From that same walk. This is the La Crosse River at Veteran's Memorial Park in West Salem, WI.

No leaves!

Left: a skele-cat I picked up at Michaels Arts & Crafts (SCORE!) and a Hello Kitty Halloween card sent to me by a good friend. In case you *didn't* know, I ADORE Hello Kitty. =^.^=

The tree in front of the house. Yellow, Red and Orange leaves in a riot of color!

Late October pumpkin carving.


Look at all of those leaves! Gotta rake those up! O.O

All of this is what October means to me. It's also, *gasp*, my BIRTH MONTH. :) I just celebrated my birthday on the 21st! Fun times, batpeeps.

I hope you've enjoyed looking at all the photos of my Oktoberfest Goodness.

  10. Beautiful collection of photos! My tree in my front yard doesn't turn gold... it's a little crab apple tree, so right now the branches are loaded with little tiny red apples :) The only time it's as pretty is when it's in bloom!
    Your pumpkin charms are adorable, and wow... that's a lot of jack'o' lanterns! They've gotten to the point where they cost too much for me to do more than one in time for halloween, other wise I'd probably carve a line up to match yours ;) lol
