Autumn is the time of year between summer and winter. However, for me, seasons are a strange thing. I have two summers in a year (northern and southern) and two seasons in between. But how do you call the season between summer and summer?

Today I went with Geert to a forest area in the eastern parts of the Netherlands to see how far autumn had progressed already. In a dry spell, we found some mushrooms in between the dead leaves. A typical autumn sight.
