For some reason I happened to discover today that sunset this weekend is at 7pm – this threw me into a tizzy because it cannot possibly getting dark that soon just yet.
No, autumn has got to be further way that that!! As much as I like the change of the seasons, they always seem to take me by surprise. In Spring it seems like the trees will never burst into leaf when all of a sudden everything is green!
Summer (no matter how wet it is sometimes) always promises that there will be more sunshine and more long hot days where I can sit out in the garden. So when I discover that the nights are drawing in I begin to realise that there will be no more sitting out in the garden in my t-shirt and shorts until next summer. That is, unless I like to freeze!!)
There is something a bit sad about knowing that things are changing again, but there is also the anticipation of knowing that summer will come back again next year. Although next year I think that I will go on holiday abroad to get some properly hot sunshiny weather as I don’t think that I could cope with another wet summer!
