Though it has been raining steadily and the humidity high, the temperatures have fallen and I can now leave the windows open for long periods of the day. I just watched a school bus go by, with it’s reminder that school started this week. However, Fall doesn’t really start until after our long Labor Day weekend, in this city marked by dual Japanese Festival at the Gardens and the Air Show. I think I’ll go to the candlelight walk at the Gardens this year, but will pass the Sumo demonstrations.
The color in the trees has not started yet as our state is a late turner. We’ve had drought this year, but I have a feeling we’ll have a decent Fall season for all of that.
