Maybe it wasn't so noticeable because this Summer was so downright pleasant. We barely had a heatwave and the uncomfortable humidity of the hot New York Summers was practically non-existent. I think there were a couple of hot and humid days in August and about a week in mid-September which is odd as September is one of the most pleasant weather months. Our crisp cool mornings and evenings are here and it is the best sleeping weather. The garden is dying back, the Montauk Daisies are making their entrance as the rubdeckias and coneflowers fade away.
The Morning Glories which usually last way into October are drying up fast due to our mini drought but some still manage to find their way into obscure little places,
the trees are slowly starting to turn,
and the pumpkin patches are taking over.
What a beautiful sight they are.
Time to start cooking stewy dishes.

We have new neighbors moving in next door, that's the second new family on the block this year and the house at the corner is for sale...a change of seasons alright. And the world goes round.
And then some things never change.
