FIRST SIGNS OF AUTUMN ON A HOT SUMMER DAY
A wonderful sunny day... the sun shining in the deep blue sky, and still full summer! But in the woods the first unripe chestnuts are lying on the ground, blown down by the strong winds...
And the crazy crocus is still in bloom in the same shady spot in the woods where I had photographed it a little less than 2 weeks ago... It has been in bloom all the way through the heatwave! Isn't this crazy??? Wild crocus blooming in August -- AND during a heatwave!
