“The garden at the beginning of October flatters to deceive. The sun still has the heat to warm through your shirt, still carries the tang of summer during the middle of the day. But no one is fooled. This is not the real thing but borrowed from summer, little more than a good memory. Autumn has arrived. The leaves are changing colour daily and the air has an almost tangible opacity you only find in autumn.”

It’s certainly starting to feel like fall around here. Plants in the garden are growing much more slowly and brown in becoming the dominant color. This year I’m happy for fall to arrive as I’m ready for a long winter rest.
