I am so happy to wake up to a new month. My thought was, " Oh September how I love thee!
I love September because:
Fewer and fewer over 100 degree days.
Zinnias are blooming fireworks and the mums are starting to show up everywhere I go.
Leaves start falling bit by bit.
We have all kinds of migrating birds coming through, and then the flickers return home. I do miss those woodpeckers and the little holes they leave on the ground because they just love to eat ants.
Maybe a beach trip, because the crowds are all gone.
Everywhere I walk will be surprises in the trees and in the sky and on the ground. It will become cool enough to get my field of dreams put to bed, my flowerbeds all cleaned and maybe some mums and bulbs to be planted for the spring. The house will be decorated with oranges and browns and yellows. The smells of baking apples and pies and cookies. Maybe some rain will come our way. Lots of wonderful things to think about when September shows up. The walks in the morning are just glorious. With the smell of fall in the air.
Have a lovely day,
" Just to know you could, That was enough,
