Right now, I find myself thinking, “Surely it can’t be that time of year already? Whatever happened to summer?” Well, summer, such as it was, has been and gone. Frost has already made its presence felt. But there are compensations. The spectrum of colours in the trees ‘on the turn’ this year seems to be particularly spectacular – green still holding on to the last, contrasted with deep golds and russets.
Perhaps the real pleasure is to be found in enjoying each season for what it is. Ecuador is said to have the climate of a continual English Spring. Maybe I’d even get bored of that!
