Today is the birthday of our eldest daughter, Dee. I have always loved the month of October, and her birth made it even more beautiful to me.
In honor of Dee, I post these pictures of this golden month that glows even when the days are gray and dreary, when even a walk to the mailbox across the street glimmers with a yellow- and russet-difused light, and the brisk air is filled with the nutty scent of autumn leaves.
Happy birthday, eldest daughter!

HB to Dee! and lovely photos, Laurie. 🙂
Thanks, Eliza! Such a beautiful time of year.
Happy birthday Dee and wonderful post to celebrate her 🍁🍁🍂🍂☀️
I would have enjoyed these photos more if I hadn’t literally just come in from raking thousands of them up in the garden. I’m exhausted.
Happy Birthday to Dee – Mr. Tialys’s birthday is also in October (Halloween actually) but he’s over in England so a card will have to suffice for him.
We, too, have had to do fall clean-up. Happy birthday to Mr. Tialys. A Scorpio, just like my daughter. 😉
Happy Birthday, Dee. … And thanks Mom for sharing the beauty.
Gorgeous autumn colours to celebrate your birthday girl.
Thanks, Susan! What a glorious time of year in Maine.

That was a good present for your daughter (and us).
Everyone should be lucky enough to have a birthday in October. I just had mine, although I had no golden leaves to decorate it. Happy birthday to your daughter — and every good wish for a coming year that’s ever so much better than this one!
Yes, lucky are those whose birthdays are in October. Thanks for the good wishes for my daughter.
I love October as well. Happy Birthday, Dee!
Lovely. Changing seasons are great the way they bring back memories and associations.
They certainly do.
Wow so pretty! Happy Birthday to Dee 🎉🥳🎂
