The last of September was about enjoying beautiful Fall flowers all around the City ....
... and the rich colors of Autumn in the country ... here, on a walk to Kirk Pond.
Unfortunately, those richly colored plants included poison oak. I paid for this macro shot with itches! (Not the best memory of the month, but maybe posting it will help me remember next time.)
Like every month when we're home in Oregon, September included family get-togethers. After all, that's really why we're here ... the rest is a bonus! For a change, I managed to remember to get a few snapshots. I'm not very good at people photos. It is more fun to just enjoy being together, but I like being able to look back.
More floral beauty of the definitely non-poisonous variety. All of the dahlia pictures were taken on the grounds of the Lane County Events Center (Fairgrounds) on the last day of September.
Out in the country again, Mom and the youngsters were enjoying wild apples and leftover blackberries in a field near our daughter and son-in-laws' home.
More flowers and below, another blue sky day. We actually need rain and 'they' keep telling us it's coming. But it is hard not to be grateful for beautiful Fall Days.
Thankful for Fall Beauty and family to enjoy it with. And looking forward to October -- rain or shine! Thankful also to the hosts of the following sharing opportunities:
