Today we say good bye to summer for another year. They seem to go by so quickly. Today the day and night, the light and dark are in balance, are equal in amount of time. Tomorrow is the first full day of Autumn. Here in Seattle we are getting a reprieve. The forecast is for 87 today and 85 tomorrow. Of course now it takes most of the day for the thermometer to rise to it's peak and then the warmth is fleeting, cooling down quickly as the sun goes down, too early now. In the garden, the signs of fall are still subtle. The shadows are much longer. Spiders are now decorating the shrubs and vines. You must be careful where you walk in the mornings!
