As September slips gently into October it seems the pandemic has erased Halloween from many of the places it would normally be a quite obvious marketing season. ( Quite honestly I couldn’t be happier I have always hated it’s trashy threatening undertones) Mexican Day of the Dead is a whole different matter, a positive festival around the same topic.
The lack of Halloween has liberated me from disliking the colour orange at this time of year. 2020 the year of loving orange in October. Today started well with a spot of bright rust.
Followed by a gorgeous autumnal crema on my morning coffee
October is the time of the gourd and this year, so far, they are not being pushed out of the limelight by obese bloated pumkins.
Thank goodness there were some yellow squashes in this picture . It gives me the chance to lead into this zingy yellow Citroen.
With the absence of Halloween, Christmas has come a little early, so I managed to grab a little autumn colour enhanced by fairy lights, what’s not to love.
Without being overly contrived let’s hope that October goes swimmingly.
