It seems to be a time of going towards harvest. Quite often, we remark that there’s a coolness in the morning. Some of the trees shed a few leaves apples and plums are ripening. This year, there has been a bumper crop of all the fruits. My Elderberry tree is laden, hopefully for great wine. The jet stream is having another blip as I write with cold and rainy weather. But there’s a threat of back up to +30 for this weekend. I was trying to define this stage of August and I think its best as autumnal foreshadowing, as its a long time before the trees change, and its a time of ripening. Love it!
