Fall comes early

It seems odd that the leaves are already changing in Richmond. We've jumped from the oppressive heat and humidity of August to the crisp cool mornings of October in a few weeks. September lasted perhaps a couple of days, and now the maples along Monument Avenue are beginning to turn a rich, orange-ish clay-red.

In a small way, it is a reminder that no matter how much we affect our environment, we cannot ultimately control nature.
