September Darlings

A post marking the last day of this very fine month. Beautiful weather, time with family and friends, work in the garden, dinners on the front porch, many wonderful bike rides, and rediscovering favorite Portland places. Thank you, September. It's been a pleasure.
The field and forest flowers no longer crowd forward in gay profusion, but September is by no means without its darlings, as we shall find, if we continue our rambles in search of flowers through the lovely hazy days of early autumn. --The Ladies Repository, 1872
