September zodiac signs – Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22) and Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 22). Birth flowers for September are the fall-blooming aster and the climbing morning glory. September’s birthstone is the sapphire, which along with the ruby are considered the second hardest natural gemstones. The first hardest natural gemstone is the diamond.
Apples, apples and more apples, my favorite fruit! September is the month for apples and apple picking has become a favorite weekend pastime. In fact, just a little north of where I live, apple picking has already begun.

to live in the now
requires some no-how
with imperturbable composure
giving the excitable the once-over
you know life’s like a menu

be grateful for life’s ride
cast chaotic moments aside
deem yourself unflappable
yes, and unstoppable
cool as a cucumber, that’s you
