Apples drop from the tree one by one.
September is a special month because it announces the exit of summer and the arrival of fall. Although the temperatures are still warm the sun comes out later and exits sooner leaving us with longer nights. Trees begin to look tired. The once green grass on the hills has retired and now mocks the eye by mimicking the color of dry ground. Red tomatoes and pepper still decorate the vines but the garden has succombed to the greying effects of mildew. Apples drop to the ground one by one but those that remain wait for a cool breeze to sharpen their red colors to lure their consumers.

They love each other as well as apple pies.
Birthday stories are an important part of birthday celebrations in this house.
September has gone. Today Miriam and I bought two big pumpkins from Raley's. It's fall.
