Ode to Autumn
The first day of March and summer is definitely on its way out. The air is noticeably cooler, the skies begin each day overcast, the cardigans have come out of the wardrobe and the birds are milling anxiously around the yard to be fed, rather than sitting languidly in the shade avoiding the glaring sunshine. I can't say I am especially sorry. I am not a fan of summer as you know - it's too boisterous a season for me here in Australia. I love the colours of the rustling leaves and the gentle afternoon sun of Autumn. They say you are most inclined towards the season in which you were born, and so it is for me. What's it like where you are?
