 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 dusty pods the milkweed 

Its hidden silk has spun; 


The sedges flaunt their harvest 

In every meadow nook;

And asters by the brook-side 

Make asters in the brook,


From dewy lanes at morning 

The grapes’ sweet odors rise; 

At noon the roads all flutter 

With yellow butterflies.


By all these lovely tokens 

September days are here, 

With summer’s best of weather 

And autumn’s best of cheer.

But none of all this beauty 
Which floods the earth and air
 Is unto me the secret 
Which makes September fair. 

‘T is a thing which I remember; 
To name it thrills me yet: 
One day of one September 
I never can forget.



– September by Helen Hunt Jackson

I am very fond of flowers with giant blooms and was overjoyed when I visited a sunflower maze last month. I didn’t bring any flowers home with me but thought I’d share some pictures with you all because my mood brightens when these flowers appear on my screen.

Happy September, all!
