The weather here lately has been extremely rainy, almost as if we’re going through a second rainy season. Thankfully, unlike the actual rainy season, it’s not nearly as hot or muggy. In fact, it’s been quite cool, with hints of autumn weather in the air. But the air isn’t the only place those hints are showing up. The ginko trees are slowly sliding toward yellow, although it will be some time before they turn fully and drop their famously stinky nuts. As for the sakura, they are still mostly green, but many of the trees have a few leaves that have changed and begun to fall. The leaf in the photo below is from such a tree. I found it laying in a quiet corner of a local shrine, and while the mosquito bites I received while taking this photo remind me summer’s not over yet, the scene itself is certainly a harbinger of my favorite season of the year.
