The theme set by Eileen for October is Autumn. Growing up in a tropical country, autumn was just another word, just like spring, summer, winter, and snow! The seasons I grew up with were the rainy season (when the monsoon rains came, twice a year in the area where I lived) and the dry season (when there were no monsoon rains). Then, I went to Wisconsin where I got to experience the season named autumn to the fullest! But, autumn in southern California is not that well defined a season! Summer lingers well into autumn, more so in some years than in others. The days do get colder, eventually, but, most trees don't change color and the few that do, usually turn yellow, not all the beautiful reds and oranges that typically signify autumn (at least, in my neighborhood) and, of course, I am not traveling to see the more typical autumnal sights.
But, here are my autumn offerings - photos of what autumn represents to me:

And falling, which gives us the other name for the season: Fall

Pumpkins, even if they are blue and not orange:
