By mid-September autumn has arrived. Morning fogs are quite common now and the walkways in the park are littered with leaves. Migratory birds arrive and depart again on their way south but things don’t seem to be as urgent as in the spring. The fox’s fur has been growing steadily and is quite thick now. Squirrels are busy now gathering food for the coming winter and the birds, which will stay for the winter, have added some more plumage to their bodies. By October it starts raining more, but, on occasions when the sunshine prevails, one can enjoy a beautiful Indian summer.
By mid October the first snowflakes appear, a foreboding of what is to come in the not too distant future. They won’t be sticking around, at least not yet. Most of the leaves have now fallen from the trees and cover the park’s floor and as November approaches things start to freeze. In the shady areas of the park snow can now be spotted amongst the trees and by mid November snow will cover most of the park. Most of the migratory birds have left now and only a few stragglers are left behind. They will leave eventually. And then there is the first major snowfall blanketing the park and the temperatures drop dramatically. Old man Winter has taken up reign in the park for the next few months.
