It hasn’t (until today) been a magical month for photography. Of course there are a few birds and some awfully cute squirrels. And lets not forget the chrysanthemums and the other flowerbox blossoms. Mostly what we have had it an awful lot of rain including two hurricanes. There was some flooding, especially along the shoreline and of course, Boston.
Around here, though we are so very much a waterway, the rivers got full, but never overflowed. The ground became saturated and the weirdest stuff grew not only in my garden, but everywhere.
The plantings at the park at the Mumford River are also covered with a variety of bizarre vines \and they have gardeners who are trying to keep things in order. The problem is that not only have we had an inordinate amount of rain, but it seems that the soil has gotten wildly fertile and everything is growing at super light speed. Overnight, vines pop out of the ground a wrap themselves around everything. Weird.
We had our 31st anniversary this month and more or less forget to celebrate. The last few years, something horrible or weird has always been going on in September. So, in honor of us having managed to squabble our way through 31 years and still actually enjoying each other’s company, a few picture — me as taken by Garry and Garry as taken by me.
So I cooked. I think I peaked with the Singapore Noodles. I also had ankles and toes so swollen I could barely walk. But hey, those were great noodles! Even if it did take me half a day just to cut up all those veggies. Professionals do this stuff so fast, it’s almost embarrassing. I do a great job. It’s just that instead of taking a few minutes, it takes me hours.
About The Changing Seasons
The Changing Seasons is a monthly project where bloggers around the world share their thoughts and feelings about the month just gone. We all approach this slightly differently — though generally with an emphasis on the photos we’ve taken during the month.
For many of us, looking back over these photos provides the structure and narrative of our post, so each month is different. Some focus on documenting the changes in a particular project — such as a garden, an art or craft project, or a photographic diary of a familiar landscape.
But in the end, it is your changing season, and you should approach it however works for you.
There are no fixed rules around post length or photo number — just a request that you respect your readers’ time and engagement.
