Perfect September

The lazy days of summer are coming to an end. The exhausting heat of summer has passed and have been replaced by perfect temperatures. Darkness is falling earlier, yet the days are still long enough to pack in a lot of fun things. Tomatoes from the garden are ripe, and the zucchini crop (of the neighbor) is fantastic! Sudo has been here and continues to charm everyone around. What a doll! She robs the sunshine every day, soaking it up to her heart's content. September is the month when the roses start to bloom again; when we really enjoy walks in the park because it's now closed to campers and belongs to the local community again; and when we can fully eat "from the garden" with great satisfaction! The neighborhood children are back to school and the voice of the announcer at the high school football stadium can be heard in the community as he announces football plays on Friday nights. What is September like at your house?
