A perfect September day in Rockport, Maine, 2012

A perfect September day in Rockport, Maine, 2012

“It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life.”P.D. James

Perfect autumn days might be more numerous in our memory than in reality., but they can happen anywhere, and they aren’t just about foliage or pumpkins.  The photo above was taken on a beautiful September day in New England when the cool weather, sunshine, water and boats were a wonderful change of pace from the heat of the summer we had just endured.

In the southern hemisphere, September heralds the coming of warmer weather. And in tropical climates, fall might mean less heat and humidity, but not falling leaves or fading flowers.

Wherever you are, whatever this time of year looks like in your world, I wish you one of those perfect days you’ll remember often!

One year ago today:

Such a beautiful day

  1. Good morning, Julia! I do miss those New England fishing villages.
    I feel like I’ve been so busy lately that I’m likely missing those many perfect days, so in this case, there are more in reality than in memory!
    Or maybe they just seem perfect, from the perspective of my office desk, looking out the window! I do try to get out for a few minutes, anyway ….
    How has the weather been for you, this year?

    • It is finally getting cooler – in the 80’s yesterday and today, but cool at night and in the mornings. And we should have temperatures in the 70’s later this week. I love the sunshine and the grass and plants like it in smaller doses, so this time of year is ideal.
