october blue

This morning brought the first official October blue sky to Columbia. There have been exquisitely pretty days recently, but they were pretty in September ways. Here we are 4 days in, and the blue arrived. Thick, deep, and cloudless, providing a canvas for the oak and maple leaves and a single giamongous hawk perched outside my kitchen window, during Wheaties this morning.
Last night, the sky had become sufficiently unsummerized as to reveal Pleiades over the deck - I should have expected the October blue this morning.

and that weren't no summer sunset neither!
