October is a wonderful time of year to visit Missouri. The weather is still warm and sunshiny and the leaves turn incredible colors.
As the days go by I see more changes.
A big oak tree on Main Street in Poplar Bluff branches upward and outward dwarfing the two story house it shelters.
Leaves turn even more intense color,
some begin to brown
the wind comes up and scatters leaves whirling and twirling everywhere
bare trees begin to silhouette the sky
the weather becomes chilly and shadows seem longer
October ends and November looms ahead with more travel.
I've been in Missouri for 10 days and will be leaving tomorrow to fly to Texas. Art Retreat at the Prairie here I come with some wrist wrap cuffs my sister Jan and I have been working on all week.
