September 2006 Calendar

“This is the month of the migration of birds, of the finished harvest, of nut-gatherings, of cyder making, and towards the conclusion, of the change of color in trees . . . its noblest nature is a certain festive abundance for the supply of all creation.” - Leigh Hunt

Septembre de noix, hiver froid.   
Nuts in September, cold winter.
