Autum this year has come along slowly. The vendange was a month en retard for many vignerons, the latest in many years, decades even, and the weather has been slow to change. Some trees are beginning to change color and drop dried leaves. Yesterday on the Planiol, the wind in the platanes caused a gentle rustle. Another sure sign that autumn is with us, despite the mild temps: chrysanthemums. A walk around the ville always reveals a new surprise, even a revelation.
