"À la rentrée !" As the French say... :-)

 'Tis the last day of August.  So I say "À la rentrée !" to you!!!  Which means:  "See you in September! See you this fall!"  Or literally, it means: "at the return"...

"In August, major sectors of France slow down or close up shop completely. School is out, the government is more or less AWOL, and many restaurants and other businesses are closed as well. Therefore, many French people are on vacation for all or part of the month, which means that la
rentrée , in September, is more than just students and teachers going back to school; it's also everyone else returning home and going back to work, returning to normalcy." ~Source

 Come September, after Labor Day, "they say" that white shoes are not to be worn now.

 And "they say" that summer print dresses, are not to be worn now.

And "they say" that white sandals, are not to be worn now.

 And "they say" that men should not wear white pants, now.

What I want to know is, who are "they" ?????  -grin-

August lingers, in her leaving...

WHAT???
I see an unwanted line of typing, in my post.
It goes left of, and through the 7th photo, down...
I did NOT put it there!!!
How did Blogger allow it, to be there????
What is going on????
***************************************

Thank you to the Dear Readers, who commented their views, on yesterday's blog entry....

For the record, I don't consider that people who comment all the time, are stalkers, either.

August is winding to a close.  September will soon come up to the starting gate...  Eager and ready to take its turn, in the Wheel of the Year. 
 
The way of the whole Universe...  Beginnings, and endings,  and beginnings, yet again.  Change is constant.  And yet, the new always springs up, from the old.
 
And as Keats so beautifully said it:

"Season of mist and mellow fruitfulness!"  ...is nearly upon us.  It's time to almost "wallow" in it!!!  :-)

Time to savor the last of freshly-morning-picked corn...  And tomatoes, right from the garden...   Melons, at their peak of sweetness... 
 

Enjoy the hot afternoons...  Cool evenings claim them, even now.  And cooler nights.

Soon "The first fire since the summer is lit..."  And  
in the country-side, we will be able to see "...cottage smoke curl upwards through the trees..." (~John Clare)  And the old apple tree, will be bent, with apples, apples, apples...

It will be Apple Pie time, again!!!!!


"This was one of those perfect New England days in late summer where the spirit of autumn takes a first stealing flight, like a spy, through the ripening country-side, and, with feigned sympathy for those who droop with August heat, puts her cool cloak of bracing air about leaf and flower and human shoulders."  
~Sarah Orne Jewett
