It’s September! Yeah!

What a lovely time of year. It’s warm, but not too warm. The days are still long and probably sunny. And there is still all sorts of yummy things still in season.

Likes the grapes in the photography above. They are now reaching their peak in lots of places that grow grapes. 😉

And then they will be finding their way to our tables in the form of fresh fruit or maybe in a glass bottle with a cork top.
