to everything there is a season

and a time to every purpose under heaven:

a time to be born,

a time to die;

a time to plant,

and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

Ecclesiates 3

happy september.

My favorite biblical quote because it so touches the soul ~ man's search for meaning. You have it right on, dear Marmee, with lovely photos and scripture. Happy Autumn, dear friend.

Meems said...

So beautifully illustrated, dear sister! Your photos are a reminder of the changing seasons on your charming farm and acreage. Rennie is lovely as ever in the sunlight.

It's also making me think a visit is in order... I long for your autumn vistas!!
Blessings and hugs!

{You might want to try pinching off some of those coleus and overwintering them in your sunroom. Just a thought. They root easily in vases.}

joey, i am looking forward to the feel of autumn. it is my favourite time of the year. it's time for the season to be new. thanks for your visits, my friend.

marmee said...


yes, yes and again i say a visit from you in autumn. right now my visitas are a little dry and dismal.
but i am sure we can overlook that with a few conversations and laughs.
renny could be my daily subject but i think all would grow tired of that. he is on the hill where the light in the early evening is pretty much always just right.
good idea with the coleus...thanks ;)

marmee said...


wonderful to see your pretty face on here.thank you.

marmee said...

thanks dear friend. i really could take photos of renny everyday.

Beautiful post! I have some pretty coleus that actually haven't died in the August drought, I'm glad for the idea from Meems to root them for some winter color!

This is also my favorite biblical quote.
Lovely seeing your September.

Lovely images Marmee and so perfect for the biblical quote. It just happens to be one of my favourites.

Autumn has arrived here, I am enjoying the light, the smells and the change in colour.

Happy autumn to you and yours.......
