september twilight







I love these days and evenings after the steaminess of summer - especially this summer, which was hot and dry, day after day.  The owls are cooing in the twilight, the mums on the step glow as you step through the front door, and the little yellow house settles in for the night.  

May you have a lovely evening!

I love this time of year as well -- there is nothing like autumn after an especially hot summer -- so welcome (but there is also nothing like spring after a brutal winter!) Oh, to live in the land of only springs and falls!

Martha - so right! Even though I loved a mostly snow free winter ( I could hike!), this summer did me in. Nice when the cool air wafts in at twilight...

How perfect, Nana! Soft yellow houses make any garden look even prettier, don't you think?

Ahh! My favorite time of year, too. After this past summer, I think we've earned and deserve a lovely, cool fall season. May yours be blissful!

Barb, you are so right on. Who knew we'd miss a real winter and summer? May there be apple picking in your future!

Amazing time of year, one of our rewards for living in New England!

After a heat wave in March and then a freeze in April, the apple crop in MI is very, very bad this year :(. So, we "import" them from the beautiful state of Washington. (thank you, Washingtin!). Same thing for our cherry crop this year - so sad. The cider mills are open, but they have raised the prices considerably because of this.

Not to be too sad though because it is beautiful now and we're happy for that!

Wishing you a beautiful weekend.

So true, diary of a tomato! Some years it creeps in, but this year, it was a swift relief from those 90+ degree days here in NH.

Barb, so sorry to hear about your apple crop. I was surprised the orchards in my area survived a few freezes during blossom time - at the time I worried about our growers, but happy to see it's turned out just fine. Such a shame for you all in MI:(
