The storm was an excellent beginning to the season, washing away the lingering dust of summer and filling the day with damp, earthy scents. The moss that cloaks the mulberry tree's trunk and lower branches has turned deep green, and there are even a few pale green patches of fresh grass in the thatchy brown front lawn. The few cold nights have brought the first hint of red to the leaves of the dogwoods across the street. It's only a matter of days before there will be bursts of bright autumn color everywhere. Oh, and donuts. October starts with a big O, which demands donuts.
