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.
