Waiting for autumn to bloom

I took this picture in the nearby Anglican church, on a Sunday where there was an exhibition of various paintings and drawings. It is a dreadfully poor picture, taken from my phone, but I love the painting so much I have decided to forget about my poor photographic skills and upload it here. It shows very well an ideal autumn day, when the season is in full bloom: cool, dry, sunny and all in fiery colours. A darn shame I could not frame it properly.

Since the beginning of September, there has been an early Indian summer. It has been hot, sunny and more summery than it was at the end of August. I want to go back to the temperature we had a few weeks ago, when there was a slight chill in the air. People are quite happy about it, but I feel more like summer is overstaying its welcome. I need cooler temperature, the comfort of warm clothes and the fire of the autumn colours. It should start tomorrow, as heavy showers are being forecast, which will cool down the temperature. Even tonight, the temperature dropped a bit. I am not too keen on the rain, but if it brings the season to start properly, and if the colours follow, I am looking forward to it.

@Jaz-The heat will be gone I hope. One just has to wait.
@Mantan-I remember back in 2010 there was a thunderstorm in September.
