November's Postcard of the Month
Burning Bush!  And Turkeys on the move.
I see it every November and wonder what it's called.  Ha!  Duh... 
Thrilling to see.*

We've seen a lot of wild turkeys this year.
One day recently, my father and I were watching planes and helicopters take off and land
at the Lebanon airport while eating our lunches, and I noted: Lots of Turkey sightings lately.
And, sure enough, as we left the airport, there, right inside the airport fence, was a flock!**

Never even glued my prototype!

Turkey prints!
Made using my lovely round rubber stamp:

**  Did I use enough commas?!

Addendum: Saffron

It's our second year of harvesting Saffron.  Amazing color this time of year!
Yes!  That's a bumblebee gorging on the Saffron crocus (crocus sativa) nectar!

October's Postcard of the Month
Pumpkins?  Pods and grids - my favorite forms.

Good October color scheme, but I don't really know where it came from -
maybe some need for structure/organization amidst all the chaos and insanity of current events.  

No real clue re: those brown lines at the bottom,
other than that I am very fond of the 'stamp' I use to make these.*
The rows of dirt of harvested fields and gardens?  Leading us to the fruit of the harvest?
Pumpkins.  :-)

"Why 9?", Mule asked.  "October is the 10th month".
Thus the addition of the note/Third Eye (which is also an 'O') at the top. :-)  Now there are 10.

Oddly - given it's Halloween month - I never quite found the 'magic' for this one.  :-/

Musical notes?  Third eyes?!

Green dot placement was a difficult decision.**
