Despite temperatures reaching almost 30°C there are signs that autumn is creeping in. The first leaves are turning. Sometimes these are on sickly trees.
We have experienced a fairly hot and dry summer. We noticed a number of trees north of Montreal on our way back from Newfoundland that had already changed colour, but many were just dried out. Some of that is happening here too.
Cooler weather will soon be here and the changes will accelerate. Autumn is slowly moving in.
