The breeze taste
of apple peel.The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.”

Lovely inspiration for a new month, one of my favorites. I am ready for fall!

LOVE! September= Sweater Weather 🙂
"The bee, his hive, well-honeyed hum". I love that. I do like the onset of autumn. One of my favourite times of year.
A wonderful post Elizabeth. Thank You!

I LOVE JOHN UPDIKE.
And, I love the smell of erasers, glue and pencils…I DO!!! Oh, did we ever have a great Open House last night. I can feel however, that I am getting my ANNUAL laryngitis!!!! It's in the air….
Have a fabulous FRIDAY MY DEAR! Anita
I love the beginning of autumn, your picture's and Updike's poem sum it up so well. Though I'm clinging onto summer for just a few more days before I return to London.
Oops! Should have typed pictures not picture's! Sorry.
This is a nice tribute to fall. Written so lovely. Love the shabby .
Blessings and hugs~
Hi again Elizabeth! I just wanted to let you know that I made my header at Picnik. It was easy and free!
