Easing into autumn

September is one of the prettiest and gentlest months here–at least as I’ve seen it, in whole or in part, during three different years. The gardens are still in full and deeply coloured bloom, the temperature is mild and even the rainy days–like this one–are almost windless.

There are a lot of folks on the street, even early in the morning these days: college and university students, winter drivers who are trying to get some pedestrian or bike time into their schedules, cruise ship passengers. Some are dressed in outfits they’ve pulled from moth balls while others of us refuse to yet surrender short sleeves and chinos.

Bike riders fly past wrapped in scarves; I guess it’s windier up there.
