October Photo Scavenger Hunt

1 - Orange

I had so many orange photos this month ~ leaves, pumpkins, more leaves ~ however, I chose the bright kayaks recently spotted at an oceanside lodge.

But a little boat called 'Toot Toot' with an orange top was spotted early in October, so I'm going to include it as well ~

Little 'Toot-Toot' looked like she might have being snubbed, or perhaps just liked to be on her own side of the wharf .



2. - Two

Two of many things as well, however I have chosen  two muffins I made, with cream cheese icing ~

3.  Flower

Here are some fall flowers and grasses in Beacon Hill Park ~ I thought the grasses looked like brushes, painting with an autumn palette.


4.  Rubbish ~ or in this case compost left over after pealing a pile of pears that a friend had given me...I dehydrated pear slices and they are tasty.



 5.  Emotion

This was a tricky one, so I chose a couple of beekeepers ~ fear would have been my emotion if I was tending to such pursuits!


6. Flight ~ This creature flew above me and I liked its 'tail light' and colourings.


7.  Home made

More baking, this time two quiches, one for a friend.




8.  Black and white ~ During our foggy days this month, the spider webs were bedecked with jewels ~



9.  Coffee time ~ I am not a coffee drinker, so found a photo of a Tim Hortons drive-thru which is popular for coffee and doughnuts.


10. Balloon

This one is grounded, but it's blown up and waiting for Halloween where it will be flying high after all its sugary treats...;)
11.  Weather vane

I had a heck of a time finding one of these things! Few and far between.  I remember seeing some for sale so here they are: (25% off by the way).  There's even a moose one!


I finally saw a barn festooned with a horse weather vane:

12.  Fridge magnet

Here's a magnet on the side of my fridge, from my days working in the school office ~


Again, thanks to Greenthumb for sponsoring this photo hunt ~ please check her link to see other participant's choices.

Happy Hallowe'en everyone!  There are some strange things afoot around here, and I plan on sharing these with you soon ~   Boooowah haha ;)

    1. Thanks for the birthday wishes Flighty here and on your site :) Toot Toot was a cutey, and looked like it should have a children's story written around it.

  9. I enjoyed your pictures, Glo! Kuddos to you for finding a weather vane! I so love Tim Hortons coffee and Timbits ~ I have to have some every time I get home to Canada. I thought the beekeepers was great for emotion. I notice they were well covered! Take Care!

    1. Thanks Fundy Blue, and glad you enjoyed my choices. Even though I don't drink coffee, there are lots of other reasons to head into Tim Hortons, for sure. Hanging around bees is not my idea of fun ~ but they didn't seem to have it covered ~

  10. Fun fun fun! I just finished washing up dinner which turned out to be nearly all orange ;-) I like your interpretation of "emotion" -- I'd be afraid, too! Those "jewels" on the web are fantastic. We seem only to get the long stringy strands that get caught in my hair and face as I walk by -- no pretty weavings. Yum! Home made quiche looks delish. Hope you have a wonderful celebration tomorrow, Glo. It was great fun to meet you and your brother and have an image of the two of you in my mind.

    1. Thanks Nikki ~ yes stringy webs also are around here too ~ just about have to wave your hand in front as you walk by the trees and bushes. The fog made all the difference to the appearance of the webs. Thanks for your birthday wishes and, yes, it is great to remember our meeting up in April :)

    1. Thanks for the kind words Hilary. The spider webs were quite amazing draped in fog droplets ~ so I was happy to capture a photo or two. It's fun to do the photo hunt, and I look through the photos I've taken during the month to see what fits the bill and then go out and search for the rest!

  13. Love the weather vanes just a shame I don't live near enough to buy one. It looks like you live in a beautiful part of the world.
