MySpot: September in the Rain

"The leaves of brown came tumbling down
Remember, in September, in the rain
The sun went out just like a dying ember
That September in the rain.

To every word of love I heard you whisper
The raindrops seemed to play our sweet refrain.
Though spring is here, to me it is still September
That September in the rain."

Frank Sinatra

France, Loire Valley - Château de Serrant V (The Woods)

A Few Flowers at Your Feet and Above You the Stars

"Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven, 
Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels."

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

France, Loire Valley - Château de Serrant IV

The Serrant Castle is representative for the Renaissance-style architecture, and it's known for it's architectural unity. 
The austere and desolate exterior boasts a schist and tufa façade, two towers crowned with domes and an imposing moat. 

This study in schist and tuffeau stone emerged from its medieval foundations to a Renaissance palace in the 16th century.
