Gathering the Moments: September




Mellow September. As the earth tilts imperceptibly away from the sun, temperatures cool. Summer's absorbed heat slowly fades from the earth. Sunny days yet, with just a few of rain. A beautiful month.
When I look back, I can see why these 30 days simply flew by. It was filled with family times - visiting Tim's mom and siblings in Alberta, my parents and siblings in Chilliwack, and family gatherings here on our Island.
  

Hiking in the Rockies, kayaking in the ocean, admiring ever-changing skies in the prairies, drifting through a misty landscape on the ferry, puttering in the garden - this month was filled with nature experiences. 


And it was a month of celebration! Three birthdays, one baby baptism/dedication, and one fashion show. Whew! Bring on October!

Yes, no wonder that it flew by! It flew by here where nothing happened. Ha!

A month of family time and nature's beauty... what could be nicer? Your collages highlight the moments so nicely.
Wishing you an October every bit as wonderful.
I like your new header, Lorrie. The pumpkin made from a book is awesome!

There are some beautiful smiles in your photos, representing lovely family celebrations! It was certainly a month for rejoicing!

Your nature photos are always exquisite, as is your prose.

I'm so glad you "gathered" together the moments of this wonderful month.

Looks life a full family filled fun September.

I'm trying to figure out where my September went, too. I don't have nearly as much to show for it as you do.

I loved your pictures. It must be so beautiful there.

September just slipped by rather quickly, didn't it? Here it has been pretty quite. Your mosaics nicely summarize your month.

Oh I love all this. Last night was cold here. I'm worried winter is on the way.
