Tomorrow morning we will be welcoming in September 2008. A lovely month that can easily slip by if we allow it. Children begin school, routines resume... & life takes on a more traditional feel. More "traditional" in the sense that nature treats us to it's "seasonal glory",... just as it always has, every year as long as we can remember..."Traditional" in the way we start "moving indoors" a bit, wanting to create warm, cozy spaces to cuddle up in.....& "traditional" in the way we begin craving "comfort" food, dishes that fill our tummies, leaving us feeling satisfied....This is also the time of year of orange pumpkins & crisp apples, both of which lend themselves to culinary delights, along with adding beauty to our homes!......

It is the time of year that the "mum" takes over as the flower of the month!.....bright & beautiful, & very hardy against the cooling temperatures of autumn. The "mum" realizes that we all depend on her for spashes of color that rival only the "changing colors & falling leaves" of this amazing season.

And speaking of fall leaves, ...let us all acknowledge the "show" that Mother Nature has in store for us beginnng this month.....A "symphony" like no that only September can orchestrate!.....So in this month,... enjoy the moments that are traditional only to Autumn, ...remember them.....For their memories will keep you warm, during the winter days ahead. Welcome September with open arms.....

Note: Our thoughts go out to all the families that are affected by Hurricane Gustav. We pray that the hurricane loses strength with every hour.....& that all of you will be able to return to your homes & communities very soon.

Hi Heidi, love the new header it's stunning! I look forward to Autumn and Winter, people must think I'm crazy but I love the colours of Autumn, the views from my house open up as the leaves fall off the trees and there's nothing better than snuggling up by the fire under the eiderdown. :-)

I love this time of year. I love the colors and the crisp smell and fell of the air! Thanks for the reminder to keep our hearts and prayers on the people who may be in harms way by the hurricane.

Hi Heidi,
I love your new banner! Looks like your ready for fall here!

What beautiful pictures! They were so nice to see as it sounds like we'll be starting out September here with rain...lots of it. We're several hours removed from the hurricane, though, so we're not complaining. I got Holly's darling little tags yesterday and they were such a sweet surprise. They're absolutely adorable!

Tracy September 1, 2008 at 1:37 PM  

Apples & pumpkins...Love this little fall sampler you share with us today! You new banner is terrific! Prayers and thoughts winging their way to all those in Gustav's way...Happy week, dear friend ((HUGS))

Yes, where did you get that gorgeous blog header? Sure makes me yearn for fall. We don't get much of one here. But I'm still in the mood for pumpkins and mums. Right now evacuees are heading into town. So that makes you wonder if they'll have homes to return to...

mommyholly September 1, 2008 at 6:29 PM  

What a pretty little post, momma!!! :) Hello September! Now where is out chilly weather?!?! xo!

Louise September 1, 2008 at 6:41 PM  

Lovely post. The pictures are beautiful, and the thoughts to go with it are warm and thoughtful.

Tamara Jansen September 1, 2008 at 7:04 PM  

Mums! The perfect plant for Fall....we've got 50,000 pots left in the field. Don't forget to get yours before it's too late.

Love the photos!

Heidi September 2, 2008 at 1:06 AM  

Happy September Heidi! I love this month as it brings me the cheer of my very favorite season.

Hugs ~

Thanks for the award, Heidi Ann! I'm thrilled! How very nice of you to think of me.

Have a wonderful, happy day!

Your little essay conjures up cozy little images in my head. Makes me excited about the approach of autumn.

Heidi, I can almost smell those mums from your picture and here in the South, it won't be long until we plant the pansies that will last all winter long.

Great new header for your blog.

Hello Heidi, I just love fall decorations too but its still 100 degrees here and I just can't seem to get into fall yet!
Your new header is beautiful and also thank you for those cute tags you sent me for participating in your Vintage Holloween Swap!
Love, Ann

Donna @ Party Wishes September 2, 2008 at 8:52 PM  

Such a beautiful post! Fall is my absolute favorite season.

Marja Kristiina September 3, 2008 at 3:07 AM  

Lovely pictures and beautifully written text that really painted a vivid autumn-y picture before my very eyes. I attempted a similar approach in my blog a couple of days ago :-)

I LOVELOVELOVE pumpkins. Don't know why. I suppose for me they epitomize the fun and quirkiness there nevertheless exists in the fall months --- and especially in Halloween.

Your fabulous tags arrived to me this morning! Thank you ever so much for your thoughtfulness, it made my day and I'm sure that the others can say the same.

I've been busy with the swap items and it's been so much fun as well as communicating with the lovely lady I was paired up with.

Take care!

Rue September 3, 2008 at 6:07 AM  

Good morning Holly :)

I can't wait for the crisp air that Fall brings! The leaves are just now starting to turn :)

Oh and yay for Sarah Palin!!! ;)

Hi Heidi! Love your new header! It is so magical and pretty! It is a personal place near you? If so, what a welcoming retreat! Thanks so much to you and Holly for the sweet little Fall/Halloween tags! They were just precious!

I am celebrating my 100th Post, so come over and sign up for my give-away if you like! :)

Great post...beautitful visions of Fall! Love your "mum" reference! :) ~hugs, Rhonda

I saw your name in Donna's blog describing as "the most beautiful blog". So, I jogged to this place, indeed it's so beautiful and welcoming. The picture is so breath taking.

The same apple(as on your tree) is kept in the fridge but they were bought from the hyper market. Having similar bright flowers but not grown in our garden. When its time to fill our vases, we had to buy them from the market.

Hope I could copy your link into mine...
