The walk and the photos were taken on Thursday, though it's later in the week now, and later in the year. The mountain ash trees are heavy with berries:
A pink sky glows in the river:
And above it:
And from the flowerbeds:
Bright color still blooms in pots:
But winter is on the way:
You can smell it, and feel it, even in this air that's heavy with smoke from nearby -- and distant -- forest fires.
