The goldenrod is yellow
the corn is turning brown

The trees in apple orchards
with fruit are bending down,
(from the poem September by Helen Hunt Jackson)
September is a month that starts out as summer
and ends with a hint of fall here in the south.
I am looking forward to cooler nights, crisp autumn days
and the lovely colors of October.
Until next time,

Once again, we are in drought conditions
and under a burn ban.
The Cypress trees are beginning to
color and drop their needles.
I think the fruit is such an odd looking
thing. Not pretty but definitely interesting.
Looking forward to rain and cooler temperatures~
Until next time,
