October 31, 2011
The mountains are changing their colors literally day by day, and while few trees around here have those strikingly bright red and yellow leaves that we often associate with the image of 'autumn leaves', their subdued, brownish shades are beautiful, too.
I was away for a few weeks, and had half expected it would be too late to have some tea outside by the time I'm back. Yet October seemed to have been blessed with a very mild weather, and I was delighted to come home to beautifully sunny, warm days.
