Thirty days hath September

...and they are running out really fast. Technically, it's still summer for two more days, but we know better.

At least this weekend we can "count" on good weather, if we are to believe the forecast heard on the radio. So far, so good--it's warm and sunny, with that beautiful soft light that only happens in September.

This morning we took the kids and their bikes to our favorite place--Szabadsag ter, or Liberty square, in the heart of downtown Pest. It's a beautiful spot, both peaceful and lively, where kids can bike and we can sip a lemonade, enjoy the architecture and daydream about what it would be like to have a flat there (it would be great, I can tell you that right away, but it's not going to happen).

The place definitely has an autumnal feel now, compared to only a few weeks ago when I was last there. The green is still the dominant color, but the first signs of aging cannot be missed (an apt description of yours truly, in fact, as she prepares to celebrate 32nd birthday).

Birthday?! Happy Birthday!!

Oh the autumn leaves are already starting to show up here in Japan too. It is getting chilly in the morning as is the perfect time of year for long walks and coffee!

I like your photos of the leaves...I love to step on leaves to hear the crunchy sound!

I love the crunchy sound, too, and chestnuts--plenty of those at this time of the year.

B-day is tomorrow but thanks :)

Beautiful Autumn images.

And you're so right about that soft light.

And happy birthday tomorrow. (Just in case I forget)

Oh you young THING!! Happy Birthday for tomorrow.

Lovely photos, it was SO warm here today...kind of oppressive actually, with hazy light. But I put away all the boys' summer clothes this evening. Even the warm days don't feel like summer now.

happy belated birthday! I hope you had a lovely day!
yes, autumn is closing in on us. I guess we'd better try to enjoy it :-)

I hope you had a wonderful Birthday.
Liberty Square sounds like a great place to pass away a few hours.

Hi Jelica

Are you a Virgo like me...

Happy days forever are just a spring chicken...

Hi Delwyn,

yes, we share the same Zodiac sign--just like a lot of other cool people I know :)))

Autumn has arrived here too! But, strangely enough, I'm enjoying it this year!
PS. Happy belated birthday!
