***It's September already!!!*** Have you started anything for the new season? I began to put some autumn decorations on our front porch - all scarecrow/harvest decs. I'm going to wait to put more Halloween stuff out until October. I got a mini-bail of hay, and set some cute scarecrow dolls on top, put 2 little painted wheelbarrows full of indian corn, and I got a new scarecrow/pumpkin head that has fiber optics today! I have a HUGE pumpkin growing in the garden as well as a little one. I have to take pictures of the big one!

This year, the Autumnal Equinox is due to occur on September 22, at 6:23 p.m. EDT. So for us on PDT, that will be about 3:23 in the afternoon! This is when the Sun crosses the equator, moving south for the year, marking the start of Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, where the days will be getting shorter and darker, and Spring in the Southern Hemisphere, where the days will grow longer and lighter.

Some also call it "Harvest Home". In Europe and Britain, the conclusion of the harvest each Autumn was once marked by great festivals of fun, feasting, and thanksgiving known as "Harvest Home". It was also a time to hold elections, pay workers and collect rents. These festivals usually took place around the time of the Autumnal Equinox. Certain ethnic groups in this country, particularly the Pennsylvania Dutch, have kept the tradition alive.

The Sapphire is the Gem for September.

The Morning Glory is the flower for the month of September.

California became the 31st State, September 9, 1850.

Quebec surrendered to the British, September 18, 1759.

According to the Georgian calendar, September is the ninth month. But, on the Roman calendar, it was the seventh month. September has had 29 days, and 31 days; but, since the time of the emperor Augustus, it has had only 30 days.

September is one of the warmest months in the Southern United States. Northern states have warm September days, but the nights get much cooler. It is also harvest time for crops. And, in Switzerland, it's called Harvest Month.

No, I did not copy and paste this information from a September website. I had previously done a lot of research when I used to do my Metaphysical e-mails.

That is the most beautiful pumpkin I have seen in my entire life.

Nephthys, you are such a good soul. Whenever I see one of your posts that line from the Bible, what Jesus said when he first met Nathanial, echoes in my mind. "Behold, here is one in whom there is no guile"

Tink,

I am glad you like my pumpkin. I miss you. It's great to see you. Please come to Heathcliffe's corner. All I have time for nowadays is Gaia's and HC's because I am going to school full time so I am swamped with work.

ooo yes it's almost time for the pumpkins! I do love the fall..crunching leaves, wood fires, apple cider...mmmm.
This weekend I'm cleaning up the flower beds and the patio...getting ready to get some mums...I love the bronze colored ones.
Then next weekend I'll get out the Halloween stuff and check it out so it'll be ready to put up on Oct 1...I love it!

5 little pumpkins sitting on the gate
The 1st one says "Oh my,it's getting late"
The 2nd one says "There's witches in the air"
The 3rd one says " But we don't care!"
The 4th one says "Who's ready for some fun?"
The 5th one says "Let's run run run!"
oooooo went the wind...out! went the lights!
And the 5 little pumpkins rolled out of sight!

Hey Saturns ~

How have you been? That's a cute poem! Will you believe I live in a court of 5 houses and I am the only one who decorates for Halloween. All the others are real party-poopers: they turn off their porch light and keep the window shade down, as if they're not home.

We hardly get any kids trick or treating,but I don't care, I love to decorate for Halloween. I always loved Halloween so much when I was little! I probably shoulnd't admit this, but I trick-or-treated until I was 18 years old!!! ha ha ha!!!

Nephthys. I know what you mean. Halloween has always been a big deal for me and my children. I've always made their costumes because they just look better and fit better than purchased ones. I've made mermaids, witches, black cats, Peter Pan, Robin Hood, Maid Marian, Friar Tuck, assorted faeries and princesses, unicorns, goblins, etc. I usually still dress for Halloween and pass out treats. My youngest daughter, now 20 just asked me a few days ago if I would make her costume this year..she wants to be Sally from the Nightmare Before christmas ( her name really is Sally, so she naturally loves the characture) So now we're gathering up remnants to make the patchwork dress. What fun!!!

Saturns' ~

I *love* Sally from Nightmare! I own that movie. She is so sweet and innocent. I like how she sews her arm back on. You could use nylons or something similar, and make stitches in them, pull them up her arms like sleeves, and it will look like her arm is sewed on! Oooh I want to see the costume! Please post a pic!

The scent of September is in the air again.
It has an aroma of all it`s own; woodsy and mysterious

------------------
Partial truth~the seeds of wisdom~can be found in many places...The seeds of wisdom are contained in all scriptures ever written… especially in art, music, and poetry and, above all, in Nature.
