Mother Nature is telling us that winter is coming. She sure has a lovely way of easing us into the cold! And aren't you thankful for that transition period? I think I would be much harder if we had to go from 80 degrees to 10 without the 40 and 30 degree mornings in between.
I took this picture in Amherst on October 4. It's already much colder than it was just two weeks ago. There's something nice about a brisk morning and pink cheeks.
