It is that time of the year when weeks flush past in quick succession, when days get relentlessly shorter, and the daytime temperature cannot make up its mind. We had a few days with over 95 degrees F here this week, that is far above 30 degrees Celsius. That is not what I want out of September. But the temperature is dropping steadily right now....
The first red Virginia creeper leaves have shown up, both in our garden and on my favorite art/nature photography blog, STILL (photo courtesy of Mary Jo Hoffman):

On the porch, the hummingbirds no longer visit their feeder, and the praying mantis seems to have forgotten that colder climates are on the way. All students are back in classes, and all teachers back teaching... just like every year.
