After a disappointing summer, I feel that September has stepped in with her rich rewards. This majestic tree stands in my neighbour's front garden. Beautifully fragrant, it rustles in the light autumn breeze. The blue sky provides a wonderful backdrop. Around here the trees are still verdant but slowly yellowing. Soon the leaves will be ready to fall and we will know that autumn has truly arrived. I read a lovely description about falling leaves that is ' when a leaf falls from the tree it is just summer's way of waving goodbye.'
