Remember September

After the world- weariness of August, when nearly all the vegetation seems to have reached its peak and started withering, September is a refershing month. Like hope that springs eternal, the richness of the autumn is where yesterday's vigour and tomorrow's designs meet. At the Park Pond, all the Hemp Agrimony in the marsh and the Water Mint by the water were in their last full flower, though the pond was choked with Broad-leaved Pondweed and most of the 20 or so heads of the Bulrush (or Great Reedmace) were heavily gone to seed. Yet the Robins were singing at full belt, focusing only on what was to come. I'd rather be a Robin.  - George
