Fall Almanac (First Week)

Laden Autumn here I stand
Worn of heart, and weak of hand:
Nought but rest seems good to me,
Speak the word that sets me free.
--William Morris

Starting out the first week of the Daytonlogy Fall Almanac, a bit of verse from the great reformer William Morris, and an image from Woodland Cemetary. I will return here every Sunday to track the changes in the season, the changing trees and changing light (but might add a few more pix of other places).

Being a numbers guy, yer humble host has the obligatory graphs, temprature, sunrise and sunset. I want to do a better job with sky conditions, though....

..interesting that the Naval Observatory (my source for the astronomical data) has times for twilight, too. Looks we are still having somewhat longer light evenings, but its noticeable that the light is getting less.

Weather, last week seemed like the lingering summer, but the nights are cooler now, dropping to around 50 once. Just the last few days though, temps have dropped below 80, and today seemed a bit cooler (not on the chart), maybe a bit less humid.

This was a perfect day, particularly the afternoon.

I really enjoy your commentary and all the charts and graphs. Will be checking back frequently to see how your Sunday photos are progressing.

Thanks, I am liking this fall almanac concept, though I wish I knew about trees and plants to comment on what's changing.
