We’ve been having some fantastic early-fall weather for most of the past 2 weeks or so, if a bit on the warm side for October. Yesterday in fact was one of those days for which we occasionally have to dust off the word “glorious”. The air was crisp and in the high 50’s for most of the day. A brilliant blue sky was generously painted with puffy cumulous clouds that allowed ample sun to warm the body and soul and to bring out the still-rich green of the grass. This in contrast to the many shades of the changing and falling leaves made for a great day to be outdoors in the countryside.
