October Photo-a-day

I can’t believe that October is over already! It was a month of lots changes in weather up here. Everything from warm, sunny days to heavy frosted nights…but that makes for great photo opportunities.

So grab a coffee, put up your feet and take a few minutes to enjoy this month’s photos:

I am still enjoying the Fat Mum Slim Photo-a-day challenge, check out Chantelle’s blog if you want to join along…
