Vee's Note Card Party: October



 Do the months seem to be marching by more quickly than ever? Here it is October already - and time for Vee's Note Card Party. 
Monday, Canadian Thanksgiving Day, followed two days of turkey dinner and getting together with family. It was all wonderful. Our plan to put the Little Misses to bed before eating dinner went off without a hitch. We laughed ourselves silly around the table and lingered long in the living room, slouching on couches, stretching out on the floor, talking, talking, talking. 





I took a walk in the afternoon, by Rithet's Bog. Ducks swam slowly in the late afternoon sun, and leaves glowed red and yellow. Soon the branches will be bare.
 

Reflections of grasses in the water are barely disturbed by placid ducks. Such a glorious afternoon. 


This photo was taken three years ago, in Port Alberni, with my old camera. I've always loved the weathered blue bench that contrasts with the carpet of yellow and brown leaves. 

Please join the party. Visit Vee's blog to see more collections of photos that we think would make great note cards.

  8. These are delightful. What a gorgeous tree and I especially like the last one the bench with the leaves so casually resting upon it

  9. Those ducks are absolutely amazing! (The photographer is, too, I suspect.) What a nice set. That's the color red we long to see here...mostly yellows and oranges in our valley. The blue bench with the browned leaves is a very artsy photograph... Glad to know that the girls stayed sleeping while the adults enjoyed their meals and conversations.

  23. Oh Lorrie
    All beautiful cards - the second one of the tree clothed in Autumn colour is spectacular - is it a maple?
    The ducks are wonderful photo opportunities - they don't fly away as they're always hope ful you'll give them a few crumbs.
    It's wonderful having your thanksgiving celebration - here we really only all get together for Christmas.
    I think we should have another one mid year - it sounds like it was such a lovely family dinner.

    Hugs

  25. Oh my goodness Lorrie, these are WONDERFUL! The ducks are adorable, and the leaves are just spectacular. I like the contrast of blue and yellow, too. You did a great job with these pictures, and I'd be happy to receive any of these as a card!

    Have a great week!

    Hugs,

  30. Your duck pictures are fabulous. We always enjoy how the water looks like glass in the morning and evening hours.
    The autumn leaves are glorious!

  31. OK, I thought the ducks were my favorite until I got to the one with the bench and the leaves. I just love that so much. We don't get nearly as many scenes like that here because we don't get nearly as many leaves. I could practically hear the crunch in that picture.

  32. Love the ducks and the season! Glad you shared your view and wish I could trudge around admiring your world with our cameras at the ready!

  33. I'd like to sit on that blue bench, rustle the leaves with my feet, and take in a pretty view. These photos would make pretty note cards, Lorrie.

  34. Lorrie,

    What stunning, seasonal splendour! I love ducks, and these are adorable; they look so calm, simply floating the day away. Your last photo speaks to my senses; I can smell the fallen foliage - were they dewy? Thanks for sharing!
