Now is the Autumn or Fall Equinox when daylight and nightlight equalise in the run up to shorter and darker days of Autumn. I’m not going to complain about the disappointingly few hot sunny times we have had, given that hurricanes have been devastatingly catastrophic to communities across the Caribbean and coastal USA.
Summer outings dropped off after I fell and broke my arm. It feels as though I’m coming out of hibernation just as Autumn begins. Next week I’m bidding farewell to London for a few days and will come back to a blessed release from the plaster cast.
Am finishing with some flora for Friday and the pinkest of late summer flowers
Postscript: It’s impossible to ignore the death toll from Mexico City earthquake and Hurricane Maria’s devastation of Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. How can we blog trivia in the face of these crises without resorting to platitudes? I am just thankful to live in a temperate zone where the worst thing that can happen is a bad summer. (I’m not going to elaborate on the recent Parsons Green tube train bomb in London)
