From school to college.
From Juniors to Seniors.
The last of the tomatoes and cucumbers have been picked.
The greenhouse has been prepared for the next batch of sowing - winter veg and salads.
Bulbs are being stockpiled for planting out next month.
Seeds are being harvested from the garden.
Lists are being written. Projects around the house, that kind of thing.
I find September a calming month. After the hurly burly of July and August, September is like inhaling a deep breath of fresh air. And then slowly breathing out......
I can feel my shoulders extracting themselves from my neck.
I'm standing. Not stooping.
I'm moving the furniture around ready for cosy evenings with curtains drawn.
It's not about hibernation. It's about a slower pace.
I need some new wellies.
