"September is transition, halfway to autumn. Birds migrate, and even a small yard with a modest stand of trees can provide small moments of wonder at nature's variety. Purple martins, with criss-crossed tails, string out along the telephone wires. Warblers alight briefly, one of the many feathered transients, as robins begin to disappear. Flower box plants begin to wither and are replaced by puffs of chrysanthemums ... yellow-white, lavender, amber and deep burgundy."
