This makes me very sad ...
While I wait for my new camera ...

Happy September!

My favorite month of the year is here! 
Let's celebrate with a pretty poem this morning, shall we?

The golden-rod is yellow;
The corn is turning brown;
The trees in apple orchards
With fruit are bending down.
*
The gentian's bluest fringes
Are curling in the sun;
In dusky pods the milkweed
Its hidden silk has spun.
*
The sedges flaunt their harvest
In every meadow nook;
And asters by the brookside
Make asters in the brook.
*
From dewy lanes at morning
The grapes' sweet odors rise;
At noon the roads all flutter
With golden butterflies.
*
By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer's best of weather,
And autumn's best of cheer.
*
~ "September" by Helen Hunt Jackson ~
