Today has definitely been warm coat and hat weather. The umbrella was in the bag unused. It was wet but too windy to use the umbrella, I’d have probably ended up like Mary Poppins rising high into the sky, while holding onto it. In deference to the change of season, I wore a scarf. I am glad I did. The sleeves on my coat were long enough to cover my hands so I was able to avoid wearing gloves. Psychologically, wearing gloves is the last bastion. Once they are in regular use, I have to admit winter is here.
Forget Autumn, I don’t think it has visited us yet. Funny though, it is cold, cold enough to shiver, and yet we still have deep green leaves on the few trees that we have. It doesn’t make sense.
