It’s foggy and dreary and rather warm here today, and severe weather is forecast for the evening. We’ve been lucky to have balmy weather throughout October, but as the front passes through tonight it will bestow upon us much cooler weather. Today I’m mourning and celebrating the switch from summer/fall into fall/winter. When I think of the overlap of seasons – the blurring of summer and fall – the above photo comes to mind. The wildflower (a lupine, I believe) is clearly summer, while the smoky grey tones elicit feelings of autumn. This shot was taken a few years ago while hiking in Utah.
