Phoctober the sixth


No one has told the flowers the autumn is here. The thermometer also seems blissfully unaware.


Other Phoctobering:

All Phoctober posts from this site.

Minx waxes poetic in a post about the post.

Taffiny shows us the whitest of roses. (sort of rhymes, no?)

Those are gorgeous!

Are those sock flowers?

Cailleach said...

Just discovered phoctober, Maht, great project - must make a start myself; would be a lovey record of what is turning into a very warm autumn here, so far.

Cailleach said...

yuk- 'lovely' even! I don't do lovey...

Taffiny said...

ah yes, much better (than treebaby, and fingerhead), though I have no clue what sort those are (interesting).

Link to me anytime you like :)

Maht, it got up to a sweltering 83 F(28C) in the southern US today. I'm actually looking forward to the cool air, if and when Mother Winter arises from her deep slumber. :)

By the way, I've linked to Phoctober. Grand Idea! :)

LeatherDyke: Well, I suppose I can't take credit for that. I did not grow them or anything. But I am glad you like them...

Hoodie: I must admit I have no idea what sort of flowers these are. If anyone knows, I'm curious myself.

Cailleach: It would be great to have you aboard. Get snappin' and let me know when you post something.

Taffiny: I don't figure most people have a problem with linking, but I want to try to get clearance before claiming something is a Phoctober post. But I am very glad for the permission.

Jefferson: I think we beat you, temperature-wise. 90° here. Stupid Chicago. And thanks for the link. Can we expect Phoctober posts from you as well? And, yes, I crave something resembling a true autumn most dearly at the moment, as it's my favorite season, and it's looking like we may only get a week or two of crispy fall before we start our laborious five-month winter. Stupid Chicago.

Minx said...

You have triffids in Merka? How cool.

Well, not cool, obviously. As Cailleach says, we are also basking in warmth over here - an odd combination of having the air conditioning on in the car while driving through an autumnal leaf storm.

Verilion said...

Are they really triffids? I looked at them and instantly started thinking of the '70's BBC series Day of The Triffids, I can even hear the squelchy noise they made. Eek scary. BTW Maht, I have caught up and posted 7 piccies today. They are old but 6 out of 7 of them were taken in October.

Vesper said...

Splendid flowers! Shhh, don't let them hear autumn's here...
I have a little Phoctober squirrel at my blog for you - these pictures though look much more autumnal...

Lane said...

Those things look like they've been dipped in sugar. Great colours though. Am not so fond of the Alfred Hitchcock head complete with Raynaud diseased fingers. Eurgh:-)

Absolute Vanilla (and Atyllah) said...

Those flowers look just a wee bit scary... Are you sure they don't bite?

Taffiny said...

Well I do have a problem with linking, I don't know how it is done in the regular type of a post. (?)

It has been in the eighties here (norhteast), and did hit 90 recently. It was getting cooler at night before, but it has stopped bothering with doing that, so I keep the air on at night. (which is just as well, since the crickets and friends tend to keep me awake).

I shall post more photos but it will be more a flowerish flourish than a fallish one.

Minx: Triffids? My dull American sensibilities cannot tell if this is the actual type of flower or a joke.

Ver: Seen and linked your great shots. Delightful for you to catch us up with a week's worth.

Vesper: Seen and linked. Delightfully fun.

Lane: I guess diversity is what I'm aiming for. I'll take my consolation in the fact that you like any of them.

AbVan: I'll admit, I really didn't get close enough to find out. I just was pretty sure I'd never seen this type of flower before, so ridiculously pollen-covered.

Taffiny: I went and saw your pink collection. Your floral theme is a nice addition to all the Phoctobering.
