September Grass...song-ography edition




"We're so small and the world's so vast"

James Taylor - 'September Grass'


[Yep, it looks different around here, thought it was time for a little change.]

So, this is one of the only three times, I think, that I made it to the sunrise ALL summer!
I know, I can hardly believe it either. I'm hoping to change that, especially before we have
to "fall back" with our clocks. Getting up early this summer seemed to be a real challenge.

"Well the sun's not so hot in the sky today
And you know I can see summertime slipping on away"

All I can say, is that apparently Mr. Sheldon who wrote these lyrics, had not been to
Texas in September because the sun IS still hot in the sky. In fact I had a few red marks on
Sunday from being at the beach to prove it (yes I forgot to apply sunscreen).
It's not slipping away quite yet, but the writing is in the sky.

 You can sense the change in the light and the lower position of the sun in the sky.
And, that the blanket flower and black-eyed susans are now growing amongst the grass.

P.S. Keep your eyes open, Monarch migration is underway!

Happy Tuesday,
Love, Kim

Wonderful late summer impressions, Kim. The past few days we got lower temperatures and more rain (showers), but within this week the sun (and the September warmth) will hopefully come back again.
In the meanwhile I look through my summer memories (that'll be my next post end of the week).
All the best from Germany between September rain and September sun. ;-)

Had to do a double take on the new header - make sure I was in the right spot even though the content told me it was (that first one in particular - WOW!). Liking the new do (so to speak). Fabulous shots with the sun, the water, the tall grass (a personal favorite with the sun - yum) and fields.
