Summer officially ends tonight about 8:00, when the sun is directly over the equator, and the minutes of light and minutes of dark are equal. Tomorrow the shift begins; in the northern hemisphere, every day brings more minutes of darkness, and less of light, while the southern hemisphere anticipates the longer days and shorter nights of spring.

Sunlight dapples through still green leaves, and the air temperature is mild. Koi ply the pond seeking bugs and finding morsels of fish food Iíve tossed in for them. They have grown fully twice the size they were just this past spring.
