Today—at 4:21 am Eastern Time—Summer will turn to Fall. And today we’ll experience the Autumnal Equinox—one of two days in the year when the lengths of night and day are the same. The equinox (“equal night”) is the point when the sun crosses the equator (in this case, from North to South). As the sun moves away, the days get colder and the nights get longer.
To help brighten-up your autumn and winter, consider the cast-pewter maple leaves, shown above. Made by a sculptor in California, they come in a pewter or brass finish ($65). Please come into the shop to see them or call for further information.
