This time of year makes my heart sing!
It was 38* degrees yesterday (bleurgh), 30 degrees today (hmm), but it’s now cooling down with a plunge and a sigh. Not one day in the next week is going to be over 27 degrees, and there are chances of a shower here and there.
Soon, the green will show. I hold my breath. Here is what our autumn looks like.
