September rolls in downright hot after August rains.
Sunflowers bloom full and bring promise of the State Fair.
Harvest Festivals boast the summer's vine ripe melons.
And Mud Swallows abandon their long guarded summer refuge.
Walls give way to make room for a crackling and popping stove.
And school supplies stack up high
Bread rises happily on the kitchen island.
And a bouquet of #2's is more welcome than a bouquet of roses.
Yes, my friends, I do believe fall is upon us. How is it popping up at your house?
