Glorious September Greetings!
“This was one of those perfect New England days in late summer where the spirit of autumn takes a first stealing flight, like a spy, through the ripening country-side, and, with feigned sympathy for those who droop with August heat, puts her cool cloak of bracing air about leaf and flower and human shoulders.”
~~Sarah Orne Jewett~~
If I had to pick a favorite month, it would be September. Of all the glorious months in the year ~ and there are many, for who can deny the freshness of June or the beauty of October ~ why September? I love her for her still warm days and cool nights. For cicadas that still sing in the trees and crickets that sing in the grass. For the garden, hanging in the balance between the lushness of summer and the splendid decay of autumn. For flocks of birds lining the wires on our country road like notes on a sheet of music. For mellowing corn fields and dew strung like jewels on bended grasses. For crabapples and sunflowers, apple cider donuts and farmers markets filled with autumnal offerings…
Welcome, old friend September!

”Thy bounty shines in autumn unconfined,
And spreads a common feast for all that live.”
