Today is the first of October and as far as I'm concerned there isn't a more beautiful month is East Hampton.
The landscapes are incredibly beautiful in their autumnal splendor. The ornamental grasses are tall and full of fluffy fronds. The greens everywhere are deeply hued and some have given way to reds and purples. Many bushes still have blossoms, like late blooming hydrangeas and crape myrtles. And the trees are still heavy with leaves.
It's a month of change though, and change is already here. Environmentally, physically, and emotionally. It's October. And I love October.
