The End of September

September was a truly beautiful month here. The weather has been warm, and the skies have been full of beauty almost everyday. Cloud formations that sent me running for the camera, sun and moon rises that confirmed our earth's splendor.

One morning before sunrise, out on our first walk of the day, there was a rainbow. It was not raining, but it had rained in the night. One end of the rainbow drifted into the clouds and spread out its beautiful colors.
It really was a beautiful month. But really, who am I trying to kid? The best part of September has been discussion of IMPEACHMENT!

  1. Well, we were doing well till the last few days of the month when band after band of rain has chased in from the west. Our PM has also been reminded sharply by our courts that he is not above the law.

    1. John-- We're also moving into an autumn wet spell here as well. The garden loves it, but I will miss all the sunshine. I love that the courts there rebuked your PM. I did my happy dance!

  2. Aside from Dorian's visit, September has been quite beautiful here too. I've been thinking about the PNW the past few days as I so often departed right about now from Ontario to spend a few weeks tripping around in Oregon and California. So many good memories of autumn along the rivers - Rogue, Applegate, Santiam, Illinios, Smith, Chetco, Winchuk, Eel, and others. I do miss those wanderings but making new memories along rivers and coves here. Many of my friends in the southwest and PNW are pretty stoked about the latest in politics down there. I would be too.

    1. bev-- Fall here is such a beautiful time of the year. The rivers are getting replenished with nice rains. Oh yes, we are definitely watching with some glee (and also fear) the decline of that beast.

  3. Now I know where the good weather was. we had a miserable Sept. weather wise. Some really good and some really bad with impeachment. Talk of civil war from the president is very scary.

    1. Red-- I hope your weather improves there, so there's a respite before winter. Oh yes, things are definitely wild here with talk impeachment, civil war, and treason. A bit scary.

  7. Lovely photographs of your lovely September. But the best picture I saw in September was Speaker Pelosi in that bright blue dress standing in front of those American flags.

  8. Beautiful skies! That rainbow is especially spectacular. Impeachment IS a tantalizing prospect, but I dread the divisions it will create. I don't think we should settle for illegal behavior in the White House, but at the same time, I wish we could all just get along. :(

    1. Steve-- Glad you liked these sky photos. I agree with you about dreading the divisions. We are really in such big deep trouble here with every layer of the problems. I'm not sure what's the best way to proceed at all.

  11. Such beautiful skies. The sublime coexists with the profane, although impeachment would kick that meter back over to sublime. Thanks for sharing your world with us.
