Are we going the same way as the fairy?

Last Saturday, I took my kids to a nearby playground so that they could make the most of the summer in October (the trees still haven’t changed colour, except those that turned grey in July). My daughter quickly joined other kids playing in the evening sun rays.

I love snow.

But I also love a beautiful Indian Summer, and I really hope that it will be one.
