Our Beautiful World-September

 This week, the blog Our Beautiful World, has given the word "September" to focus on.  So many lovely pictures on the blog!  Be sure to take a look!  September to me means several things...the beginning of the school year, the beginning of my favorite season...Fall, the beginning of cooler weather (but not HERE yet..100 today!) So here are some pictures to depict what September means to me!

Beginning of Fall colors over the Mississippi River
Fall Asters
Fall Asters at home in Texas
First Day of School
Fall colors in Illinois where I grew up

    Oh, and how could I forget!  The beginning of football season!!!  Football is KING in is a kind of passion not seen everywhere!  We were more into following the marching bands and enjoyed the half time shows...with our daughters and granddaughter. ..all grown up and on to other things now!  We may have to just go to the games and "adopt" one of the marchers to follow!!!

Friday Night Lights!!


  1. the colors of the fall season are so exciting to see in your first shot~!

    and those asters~!!!~ i don't think i've ever seen so many grouped together like that before. what a visual impact they make~!

    one of the things that i like the best about this time of year is the cooler temps. ours have come down and we've even had some unusual rain for the past week or so. i cannot imagine dealing with 100 degrees. i hope that it cools off for you soon.
