Harvest Time


September is Harvest Time.
The days become shorter and the sun
doesn't feel as intense.
The fruits of our labor hand us a gift from the sun and the earth.
There is something so beautiful in this time of the year.
The anticipation and preparations for the winter ahead.
The tomatoes and apples say "pick me, pick me".
Pies are made.
Warm tomato slices in thick slabs are placed on the dinner plate.
Pumpkins are beginning to show their true colors in preparation for the dark season ahead.
Zinnias and sunflowers shine in their glory.
JOY is definitely the word for the Harvest time of September.
