Big Wind

A strange kind of autumn has arrived.  The wind blew for 24 hours, the first rain in weeks drenched the gardens, and now the ground is covered with twigs and branches and many, many leaves--green leaves wrenched untimely from their homes, leaves that will not turn red or orange or gold in October.  It's long-sleeve weather, sock-and-boot weather, put-away-the-fans weather.

The little dog is Bisou, but I have no idea who the long-haired woman is

  1. It's me! with my hair getting in my eyes, and Theo's ears floating on the gusts, both of us relishing the crisp edge to the almost-fall weather.

  5. I am eagerly awaiting this weather, myself. Ah, the joys of putting on that favorite cozy sweater for the first time and curling up in the chair with a steaming mug of tea...
