I love October in Kansas, but probably not for tha same reasons most people are fond of the spookiest of months. Don't get me wrong. I adore the changing of the leaves and all that comes with it. It just doesn't really get going here untill well into the month. Much of my garden in still green and growing. Especially the roses. They seem to love the cooler temperatures and have one last, great blooming in October. They will bloom sporadically until the first hard frost (often not until December here), but this is their last really big hurrah for the season. As always, I am enchanted.
