View over to Arthur's Seat
first hints of autumnal colour
I know that many people believe that seasons start at the appropriate solstice or equinox (I think this is the traditional view and most firmly held these days perhaps in the USA). Like, I suspect, most British people and certainly our Met Office, I think autumn officially starts at the beginning of September. That said, I really believe that the seasons start when they want to start and our official dates are just for our own convenience.
We had a lovely walk round Craiglockart Hill today. It didn't really feel autumnal though the leaves are starting to turn.
