"By all these lovely tokens
September days are here
With summer's best of weather
And autumn's best of cheer."
~ Helen Hunt Jackson ( 1830-1885 )

Hello Jo!

Oh how I wish it was 72 here this weekend...but the 93 we have right now is cooler than 108 that we had a while back! Enjoy your beautiful weather while you have it Jo and your gardens...what a wonderful place to be on a perfect September day. Take care....Maura :)

What a beautiful photo. The dark "frame" really brings out the green in this photo. What program do you use to "frame" it like that?

September certainly has gotten off to a glorious start here on the Plateau. Now if the good weather (and some rain) will only keep coming.

I am not sure what season we have here at the moment. It is wet and windy and still green.

Howdy! Since you were so kind to come on over to my blog, I of course had to come on over to yours. Does the word WOW cover it! I love all the pics.
Downright breathtaking!
And I love anything old. The history behind it is fascinating.
