The air grows colder
Birds gather to plan their exit
Winter is coming.
There was a different feel to the chilly air today, an ominous portent of the season that is coming. The fall has so many wonderful qualities but I must admit that I would enjoy autumn so much more if I didn't know what was going to follow it. As it's not even halfway through September, I can only hope that the warm weather has not quite left us yet, that this spell of unseasonably cool, wet weather in our immediate forecast will soon be replaced by warmer temperatures before we must pack away the lighter clothing and open-toed shoes for good.
The older I get, the more I'd like to be able to fly south for the winter as many of our feathered friends do!
