We like Septembers

Taormina - Al ampiteatro, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

We like Septembers - mostly because bfor the last twenty years or so we have had very good weather in September, always a nice consolation after a disappointing summer (as they tend to be). Whereas in July and August one expects sun, one feels that sun in September is a bit of a bonus and after any really nice day there's always the question of whether that was the last day of summer.

The strawberries are ripening again, the tomatoes expanding and the grapes are just so sweet. A good thing that pigeons don't like sugar, so they have gone off to pinch someone else's food.

Here is a picture of me fronm June three years ago in Taormina on the wonderful Mediterranean island of Sicily.
