It’s that time of the year again. Mornings and evenings are becoming noticeably shadowy and chill. August is behind us and we’re starting to head back down into the cold and the dark of the year. Time to bolt the doors, draw the curtains, turn up the lights and settle down to some blogging once more.
This is a particularly beautiful time of year, I always feel. The autumn leaves are just starting to fall, fungi are ripening, the woods and parks and riverside areas of west London are still full of colour. This is when garden spiders are at their largest and most fearsome, and when the dew on their webs sparkles in the bright morning sunshine. Michaelmas daisies are everywhere, suddenly.
Definitely time to get down to some more writing – and there’s lots to write about.
And now it’s November. Yes, must do some writing before year’s end! I’ll probably do a sort of round-up edition of “100 Years of Climate Change” towards the close of 2011, but before then, I’m planning to write a few book reviews.
