Harvest and Leaf Fall
This is my favourite Season: the time of Harvest and Leaf Fall.
Autumn now sleeps on our bed at night and lingers with us over coffee until late morning, but in the afternoon, it is Summer who is out back, encouraging even the most reluctant of kiwi branches to send out more heart shaped leaves, more twining tendrils.
We may have Indian Summer, but the geese are not fooled for they have been practicing flight formations every night, getting ready for the Migration South. They know that Autumn will soon take over the days and not just the nights.
