I`ve heard that because our summer was so dry, autumn came early. And it seems to be going fast. Every day I`ve been out walking in it and in these final days, I think it`s most beautiful. Because of the rain, the ferns and mosses are vividly healthy yet the forest floor is covered with bright decaying leaves. Now that they`ve fallen, you can see deep into the trees. That spatial element with the rich autumn color is rewarding even in the rain.
