It’s 20:30pm and there is only faint twilight in between the clouds. The sun went down nearly three quarters of an hour ago. It will be (meteorically) autumn in two days, which I think is great! Although I don’t think we can properly class it as autumn, until, we experience those first clear chilly evenings where the sun is merely a faint red glow on your face when once it was a great tower above you, and you can smell the burning and the first real possibility of a frost. I remember last autumn, well more (very) late autumn I was with my college group and we were doing hardwood cuttings on trees. The ground was carpeted in leaves and although it was afternoon the sun was setting behind the trees and was gone by the time the lesson had finished. It’s one of the great advantages of working outdoors.
