It is the time of the autumnal equinox in the northern hemisphere….
Here in Calgary, we mark this year’s autumnal equinox at 2:44 pm (MDT). While I’ll be at work at that very moment, I plan to go for a long walk after my shift. The trees are changing colour now and the leaves are getting underfoot. It’s nearly time to put the garden to bed….
I’ve already baked two batches of spiced pumpkin muffins - does that mean I’m ready for fall? ;)
