corner view september


september is usually the last hot and humid month around here. not as hot as july and august, but still pretty much summer.

it's the month of the jewish holidays of rosh hashana, the new year; sukkot, the feast of booths (where you are to eat your meals outside under palmtree leaves); simchat torah, the reading of the torah starts over again in the synagoge; and yom kippur, the day of atonement and probably the most important of all jewish holidays.

we'll have a lot of family dinners and events around here. and i am planning to show and tell as it happens. today i am showing you a few glimpse from around the village, taken on yesterday's walk to the place of the fire.

evidence of september: orange dates fruits on the palm trees, texas sage blooming in the front yard (which i brought home for a bit of pretty in the house), a few white clouds on the clear blue sky, and then the green that is still here, all though most green plants and grass is by now dried out and more yellow than green. summer sun is hard and shows no mercy to little plants.

  22. Funny to live in a similar climate as you- soon the palm fruit will be everywhere, here, too. September is usually the hottest month of the year here in L.A.
    Happy Holidays to you :)
