The Dog-End of Summer...

As the TV weatherman was eager to remind us, "meteorological autumn" started on the first of September, but according to the calendar and the weather, we're still in the dog days of summer, with Sirius visible in the early morning skies and humid daily highs in the eighties and nineties. Good weather for porch-sitting and early morning walks.

The Japanese maples in the neighborhood are starting to turn, though, and my own personal astronomical harbinger of the changing seasons happened yesterday, with sunset being at 7:59PM. From now until late next March, the sun goes down before eight...

The Last Lawn Mowing of the Season is not far off, and then comes the Season of the Wool Socks.
