Never mind that the autumn equinox has come and gone.
The temperatures have dropped, but not enough to go into fall clothes, but sleeves feel good.
We can eat on the patio without melting.
Showers are warm to hot instead of cold to lukewarm.
It is time to make relish.
There are fewer tourists and the marché is no longer crowded.
We know there are more signs of fall in Geneva where we will go to the end of the month and we are really looking forward to a New England autumn.
And it is time to make relish and apple pies.
