And suddenly, it’s quiet in the Village. The families with children who summer here have gone home, taking with them so much of the buzz and chatter that fills the air. Town still has its own children, of course, and many visitors love Jewel Bay in September, when the skies are still blue, the hills are still green, and you can come downtown and find a parking spot on the first try.
My first summer in Jewel Bay since I was a kid was a great success in some ways, but brought with it much sadness. So I’m looking forward to September, with its gentle breezes, warm days, cooling nights, and changing colors.
Here are a few of my favorite Jewel Bay colors:
|Autumn Joy sedum over Autumn the cat's grave|
|the view east|
|A last stray clematis bloom|
|the bridge into the Village|
What are your favorite colors of the season?
