Out and About: October Was A Treat

Mother Nature treated us to a lovely month of October! She gently brought the temperatures down to the sixties and fifties so we could make an adjustment from September's seventies. Then Halloween's forecast looked dismal but turned out to be a seventy degree night. The rain held off, the winds picked up, and leaves swirled and crunched underfoot making for a spooktacular time. I took advantage of the sunny days during October to see autumn color and finish hiking the Saratoga Plan nature preserves. November came in windy and colder zapping my pepper plants at last. We didn't get a coating to an inch of snow which was predicted for November seventh but likely will see snowfall on November eleventh through twelfth. Take a look at fall color in Round Lake and some views at Henning and Levine Preserves in the town of Providence and Rowland Hollow Creek in Milton.
