April might be wet and moody, and the summer months can leave you
gasping with the heat
but when did September ever let you down????
Such a wonderful month..
full of energy and enthusiasm and new beginnings...
During the school lunch years (and they were many with our
six children stretched out over sixteen years)
when I was making sandwiches, baking chocolate cakes
and cookies, how I yearned to pack up a lunch
for myself, and join them in the learning experience.
Eventually I did go back to College
but in the meantime September was like New Years,
full of good intentions and
wonderful projects to tackle.
And the colours, the harvest, the mellowness,
the gentle descent into sleep
that was going on in the gardens and
throughout the countryside.,
