It’s official. Autumn has peaked and will now disappear. First, slowly, but then, probably by the end of the month, the leaves will fall. That will be the first fall. The second fall — oak leaves — will be sometime in November. Last year it was just before Thanksgiving. It usually happens sometime around the end of November. Until then, we have the golden bronze of oak leaves to give us a bit of autumnal nostalgia.
I’ll not overburden you with pictures today, but I still have another few hundred I haven’t even properly looked at, so one way or the other, you’ll see them sometime in the near future. Also, to be fair, I love autumn and whatever it takes to hold onto it for a little longer works for me.
I shiver a little because after autumn comes the black and white season know as (gulp) winter.
