Normally, I like the month of October.  Bright red maple leaves, yellow poplar appendages and a few oranges contrast beautifully with the blue of the sky and the grey-blue of the lake.  Add in some bright orange pumpkins and some gourds in various other Autumn colours and October is a feast for the eyes.  Imagine my surprise then when the world turned black and white this morning.

The pretty pinks, reds and greens of my garden got blanketed in monochromatic white.

My pumpkins are still bravely trying to display their orange hues.

Well, at least black and white are always in style!  I am missing the colourful snapshot I used to see out my window though!
