Signs of autumn

So far, September has been warm, even hot, much more than the end of August, when I could feel autumn looming. That said, there are signs that autumn is here, even though it has been so far discreet:

-The leafs are changing colour. Most of them are still green, but you can see yellow and red on the trees. And it is not because of dry temperature: it has been raining on a regular basis.
-There are also leafs on the ground, in some places more than others.
-The night comes earlier. It may sound like nothing, but it gives a very different feel to a day.
-Nights, early mornings and sometimes evening are quite cool, even though the days are still summery.
-There is the general attitude of people around: they all seem a bit more down. Not me, I like autumn and even its melancholy. But there is that feeling in the air.

Of course, it is easier to show on this blog with seasonal pictures, in a way this blog is much more autumnal in look than what I see outside. But this is the nature of fiction: it enhances our perception of reality.

Well at least it's starting to feel like Fall somewhere. Here in Florida it is still HOT! But there are lots of Fall goodies that have made their way to the stores...pumpkin donuts, coffee, etc. Hurry up Autumn! :o)

We are feeling it too. I think the light change...getting darker earlier - just brings Autumn into focus.

@Wendy-It is too hot here too, but so is the nature of September in England and often elsewhere. It should get cooler next week.
@Frog Queen-Cheers back!;-)
