It feels a bit odd declaring summer's end in mid-August... but many signs around here point to its departure. Yesterday, for the first time all summer (and much of the very hot Spring before that), I opened the balcony doors to the most lovely crisp morning air. I also noticed leaves in the park had already lost their summer-y green color. Stores are depleted of school supplies, and many of you dear friends have children who've already started school!
Has the season shifted where you are?
