August was relatively cool this year, so it should have been no surprise that on September 2 it was 80 degrees and humid. The roofers came to put on a new roof – and were slowed down by a shower in the middle of the afternoon.
As the month progressed it became cool again. There was two inches of torrential rain on September 6 – and the new roof is not leaking! Our granddaughter Tricia’s wedding was held at Look Park in Northampton on Friday, September 12. The weather was perfect, sunny and warm. Then cooler weather again with a light frost on September 18. Some plants were nipped, but no serious damage. There does not appear to be much change, but the phlox is nearly gone by and you can see the green seeping out of the foliage in the woodlands.
Fewer flowers are blooming in the Lawn Beds, but color is rising all around us in the woods.

I always enjoy your photos from the second story. It gives an interesting view of the garden. I can imagine a grass labyrinth in that big open space. Leaves are beginning to turn here too.
Lisa – I have enjoyed this series of the view over the seasons. I can tell you right now I will not be the one to create a grass labyrinth here – even though I admit it is a great idea.
You must have a very high second floor. I love that bird’s eye view. My house is on a hill, but is just one floor except for the basement.
Oh Pat what a glorious view as fall waves its magic wand over your garden…
