October Twenty Eighth

First snow of the year! Just a light dusting, and it melted by the end of the day. But still, very early this year.

October Twenty Sixth

We now have not only yellow leaves, but red, copper, and brown. They have begun to fall and thickly carpet the ground. Days are usually misty, coating everything in glistening drops. I can feel winter's approach.

October Fourteenth

Autumn is definitely underway now; lots of golden leaves and mushroom clusters. The salamanders are out in great numbers, and you have to be careful not to step on any on the forest path.

September Twenty Fourth

The very first yellow leaves are showing themselves and the days are growing noticeably shorter.
