Happy September!

Dahlia at Mount Congreve Garden, Co. Waterford.

The arrival of September has long  felt like a major turning point ~ especially from the times it marked the return to school after the Summer holidays.

In recent years, it is a month that I find difficult as my father died on September 1oth, 2010.

Speaking of father, I can’t  but think of  his absolute love of the light, high tides and colours of  September. It was the month he always chose to go on holiday in Ireland after he had taken early retirement.

So, this is a month during which you can expect to see a lot of colour and mixed emotions here on Social Bridge.

Where does September bring you in terms of thoughts, moods and memories?
