My second favourite month...

...or perhaps my favourite. October is in competition with May for sure. They're individually months of marked late seasonal changes that bring my favourite things--peonies, lilacs, beautiful greenery versus gorgeous fall colours, a feeling of renewal (despite the death of the greenery) due to school reminisces, and Hallowe'en--my favourite holiday.

This May, and for part of June, I get to live in the Annex as I cat-sit, which invites me to explore the beautiful neighbourhood which apparently is full of lilacs!
