I have always enjoyed September, while in the Midwest I was an avid gardener and loved this time of year. The garden would be winding down but the bright Sunflowers, Mums, and Marigolds would fill out into their splendor and as I drove up my driveway they would always great me with their cheery burst of color. I lived by an apple orchard for much of my life and so September has always been associated with the beginning of the apple harvesting season.
How beautiful and simple is a ripe red apple hanging from the tree. Bushel baskets lining the little shop wall with every flavor and color of apple possible with cute patterned signs announcing their names; Macintosh, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, and so many more. Although we visited the orchard regularly we would always have to sample the different apples as if this was are first time stopping in.
These are some lovely items that are handmade and upcycled that I found on ETSY that really remind me of those lovely Septembers of years gone by. And here's to many more lovely Septembers of the future!
