first day of autumn. For once, the calendar and the weather seemed to be in agreement.
Saturday was sunny, the perfect day for end-of-summer chores -- digging the last of the potatoes, tidying up the grape vines, pulling off the last of the berries for a fruity dessert.
But Sunday -- anything but a SUN day. The rains began in the night and lasted for most of the day, announcing with a kind of finality the end of summer.
Equinox, a time of balance, a time for change.
