I know, August is still summer and only the first half of August has passed. Nevertheless, autumn is looming, there are indubitable signs that the season is looming. August is often like this. Of course, as I love autumn, I do not mind at all, I am actually excited to see these signs, especially since summer has been hot anyway.
So these are the signs I saw, in order of importance:
-The temperature has dropped down. It is barely perceptible during daytime, but during the evening and at night it is quite cool.
-I thought it was wishful thinking at first, but the cool breezes are most definitely announcing autumn.
-The fruits on the trees are ripening and announcing harvest.
-The leaves on some trees are already changing colours. I thought at first it was just exceptional. But there was one maple tree I saw yesterday evening, half of its foliage was red as if it was September already.
Of course, apart from the last one, this could change at any time: summer could just come back in full force for a last blast. Even after August is over. Nevertheless, it is a fairly good sign for the season to come.
