Leaving Kellynch Hall

In a few days it will be autumn, the season of Persuasion. I thought something a bit melancholy suited.

“The last office of the four carriage-horses was to draw Sir Walter, Miss Elliot, and Mrs Clay to Bath. The party drove off in very good spirits; Sir Walter prepared with condescending bows for all the tenantry and cottagers who might have a hint to shew themselves: and Anne walked up at the same time, in a sort of desolate tranquility, to the Lodge, where she was to spend the first week.”

    Beautiful days, crisp nights, vibrant colors–that’s autumn. As a teacher, it’s a time of new beginnings. For the farmer, it’s time to gather the harvest and settle in before winter arrives.

    Spring is the season for romance, but this is not the usual love story. I love it.

    The weather is wonderful today – the first day of fall. Toby is sitting on the porch with his head between two posts, enjoying the coolness. I believe it’s around 70 degrees. After a 100+ summer, 70 is refreshing.
