The golden-rod is yellow;
The corn is turning brown;
The trees in apple orchards
With fruit are bending down.
The gentian's bluest fringes
Are curling in the sun;
In dusty pods the milkweed
Its hidden silk has spun.
The sedges flaunt their harvest,
In every meadow nook;
And asters by the brook-side
Make asters in the brook.
From dewy lanes at morning
The grapes' sweet odors rise;
At noon the roads all flutter
With yellow butterflies.
By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer's best of weather,
And autumn's best of cheer.

Produce from our garden. Exclude the pears, they were bought at the store. And the pepper, it was from my parents garden.

Lovely pictures. Love the specimens and the angles you used. :) Hard to pick a favorite, but I'm always a sucker for things that show growth and progress like in your cucumber picture. :)
