the scent of autumn

Since the beginning of September we have had cool days here - mostly cloudy, sometimes with rain - this is unusual. Usually the summer heat is still severe in the first half of September. This is the coolest September during this 80 years, they say. After such cool cloudy days today we again have sunshine and the temperature rose. Still the air has some… unmistakable autumn atmosphere, it’s rather hot but the air is fresh. We have opened all the windows during daytime. It’s so comfortable.

I did my job at home, and on lunchtime did some walking in the neighbourhood. The sunshine was rather strong but clearly different from summer sun, warm but somewhat mild, it’s good to see many laundries and some futon mattresses on the clotheslines or on the balcony balustrades under the sun in many houses. I saw many dragonflies, and noticed very subtle scent of fragrant olive. This is my favorite smell. Very early - usually it’s in the beginning of October.

I have aired my futon mattresses on the wooden verandah … and unfortunately our garden cats misunderstood they were theirs X(
