Summer into Autumn
The end of summer is turning into the beginning of autumn, my favourite season. The nights are cooler and the days shorter. Although the countryside is beginning to quieten, to die back and to hibernate, September always feels like a time for beginnings - memories of the start of the autumn term and the new school year.
I've had a busy few weeks, a family holiday in Wales, visits from family, the start of the university term for youngest son etc but now the rush is over and the gentle days of September are here.
Although we are past the autumn equinox, the days have still been warm and sunny, I'm taking time to enjoy them while they last.
