Autumn

The weather the past few days has not been exactly autumnal.

Monday in My Car

We had been wearing long sleeves and jackets. And at night, temps were low enough to require turning on the heat. But for onlya little while, it’s been back to tanks tops, sandals, and a.c.

The trees in our woods had just begun to turn. They must be really confused.

There are other signs of autumn. Stattel’s is the only remaining family-owned farm near our house. I stopped by their stand yesterday to pick up some vegetables. They’ve got mums, pumpkin-picking, and hayrides.

Yesterday evening, there was the beginning of a return to more fall-like temperatures. The pace of leaf turning will pick up, those trees will become bare, and we’ll begin to hear “old winter’s song.”

“Autumn Leaves” is a favorite of mine. Here’s the version made famous by Roger Williams. He died on Saturday at the age of 87.
