The leaves are changing colour. The bright green of summer is turning into a blend of gold, bronze, red, and orange.
Gone are the light and lazy cotton t-shirts. Heavy coats, wool sweaters, knitted scarves, warm gloves now cocoon their hurried wearers. The wind is brisk and biting.
Sunset is earlier than it was yesterday. Sunrise is later.
The smell of fast approaching winter is in the air.
