Officially, around 21st September, and this year it arrived with the precision of a Swiss watch. But sometimes it can slip its calendar moorings, and choose another moment. I loved this marker of Gavin Maxwell’s.
Autumn begins for me with the first day on which the stags roar.
And for you? What triggers your awareness of its arrival?
