autumn in the languedoc
even though i am still wearing sleeveless tops in the daytime, there are signs that fall is here. the grape vines are still mostly green, but the first of their leaves has just started to be edged with reds and oranges. a storm front moved through tonight, and the air was not quite sizzling hot enough to dry the rain before it fell to earth. the quince is now yellow on the quince tree. and the last of the stone fruits sit next to the first of the pears at the local grocer’s stand. i’m ready. but not ready. but ready.
