I look for beauty and truth in everything. It's not always there of course but I try to find it or make it happen. I love people who make me laugh.

September

We have to change our mindset. Summer is not over.( Not that it really had much to say for itself this year.) We still have three weeks of official summer and the forecast looks wonderful for the next little while, so Labour Day or not, Back-to-School or not, I think our best weather of the year is here. September in this part of the world is usually blue skies and relatively bugless except for a few welcome honeybees. Also on the plus side: humidity is low, nights are cool and the lawn-mowing is slowing down.

So I just did a quick tour of our gardens to share what I saw today, staring with this photogenic lettuce, probably bitter but not twisted, (above) as well as...

...green tomatoes, just ripening...

...some beets...

...a ferny frond...

...a few violas...

...a tiny blood-red rose...

...coreopsis...

...California Poppies ( I think!)...

...asters...

...and of course...

...more...

...glorious pond pictures. Here's to September!

Photos are lovely. I agree, Fran...the weather has been glorious the past few days, and should continue (at least till the up-coming Full Moon...when things usually change.). Loving the cool air and the hot sun. Trying to get the last hurrah out of the swimming pool. I'm going to have to find a good indoor pool for the winter. :(

Great post Fran. I actually sat outside in the sun today and cut down my irises. I had forgotten what a few hours of sunshine felt like. Bring it on!

I think artists especially like this time of year because they respond to the quality of the light. It is soft - not harsh like summer light nor meagre like winter light. Your photos have captured that. So nice to see - makes up for the fact that I am in a stupid office building.
