Oh, September! Some call it the true new year, with kids back at school and parents dealing with back-to-school schedules. With cottage season winding up, it’s not my favourite time of year, but I do know how many truly love the cooler temperatures, fall colours, and spiced-pumpkin everything.

A highlight of my month was seeing the launch of the Monarch Ultra Project, when organizers boarded their RV in Peterborough and headed off on a 4,200-kilometre journey all the way to Mexico, with ultra-marathon relay runners following the annual migratory path of the monarch butterfly. So I was very pleased to see our monarch butterfly tribute in our #2 place this month!

Thanks to everyone who allows us to share their photos — we hope you enjoy their photographs and follow them!
