Hello, September

September seems like it really should be the beginning of the year. I never feel like January’s New Year’s has any thing to it. Things aren’t changing in the weather or natural world, the holidays are emotionally exhausting and I don’t feel ready to look at the past or energy to move into the future with purpose.

September is a month of change and transition. I tend to have time reflecting about the year at my annual trip to Mt Rainier in August and when September comes with the cooler weather I feel ready for new endeavors.

All of these photos were taken within four blocks of my home.

This week I decided to try and take photos that show the transition between summer and fall. The days are shorter and the little bit of rain we’ve had is bringing some things back into the green while others head toward seed formation.

Putting together a gallery seemed like a natural when I saw City Sonnet’s prompt: Welcome September.

Crocosmia Lucifer

On today’s morning dog walk the crocosmia caught my eye. It had already caught the eye of the local bees.

However, the real flower of my day today was my niece, who is taking a real interest in construction these days:

This is heart warming to her structural engineer aunt, we are already discussing the need for a strong foundation…and she is getting it!
