Suddenly, Fall has arrived in Rome.
On Sunday my friends were swimming at the beach. Monday was a Bermuda shorts day. Tuesday? The temperature dropped by 20 degrees (F).
This morning the air was very clear and crisp. I think I need to bake an apple crumble.
The leaves are started to drop along the Tiber River. The chestnut vendors are actually selling chestnuts now. They started weeks ago but nobody wanted to buy hot chestnuts when it was 85 degrees out.
One thing I loved about growing up on the East Coast, was the change in seasons. Our town had a LOT of trees and many of them were in our backyard. It wasn’t so fun to rake them but we did enjoy jumping into the piles.
The last two weeks of October is best time to drive up to the Hudson River Valley to check out the leaves.
The reds and oranges in this photo are gorgeous.
