The colors of the small tree/bush are beautiful. You can tell that autumn is upon you. My first day of September was uneventful. I was exhausted from yesterday's day going through more things to sort, and then my friend and I went to listen to a concert with a local Latin jazz band. So, today, I was in a quieter mood. I did buy flowers, and some new towels, and a couple of other things.

@LadyDuck a little of the same here as the first day of September came meek and quiet with a coolness that chilled and yet later today after the sun rises, we shall feel the 85 mark again . . . so I know too summer is not quite yet over

@LadyDuck Thanks, I had intended to take some time off myLot this summer and then had an accident that really prevented me from being here but all is well. I think soon we are going to get some storms as Hurricane Harvey makes it's way north.
The first day of September was a holiday here in respect to Islam's Edl Adha (I don't know if the spelling is correct) . I spent it at home and cooked lunch. The in-laws were happy I cooked. At least, it's different from the helper's cooking throughout the whole week.

Wow such a beautiful picture and love the change of colors. I guess that is one thing I miss here on the islands. We don't have fall colors. We always have bright and beautiful colors that surround us year round. The first day of September doesn't bring much change here. We are still having rain and winds. Normally they come in spurts. It can last 3 days, 6 days or 9 days. Looks like we are in for a 9 day storm this time.

I knew the harvest moon was in Sept, but I didn't realize it's the largest moon. I don't remember much about the first day of the month, but I know that the first couple of weeks got quite cold so that even my husband was complaining he was cold. Then we got another heat wave into the nineties with a heat index a couple of the days into the hundreds. The temps are beginning to come down again, but some days will get warmer than others or so it shows anyway.

@LadyDuck Thanks, I'll have to keep that in mind. I might have to check what time it will be out. I'm working the night shift again most of this coming week starting tomorrow. I would have to see whether I can poke my head outside of work a few moments at the proper time to have a look and maybe get a picture if the sky is clear, but I will probably forget. I just checked out the Farmer's Almanac online and it will be at 2:41pm in our time zone. That will be somewhat around the time of my lunch, maybe I can put a reminder on my phone or something. Thanks, Anna for the info. My daughter just pointed out to me that that will be in the afternoon, not the night. I double-checked and that is correct. So we may not see it well if the sky is clear, or it won't pop like it would otherwise. *( I really have no clue as I don't know that I've caught it before).
Thanks for the Canadian history lesson! It is a beautiful sunny day and I was so glad to out to enjoy it. For the next two days Hurricane Harvey will be visiting us but it should not cause any harm as it is now very weak and we will probably just get some rain. The nights are getting cooler and I had to use a comforter to be comfortable during the last couple of nights.
