This time of year it's nearly dark when I go out with the dog either at about 8 a.m. or about 6 p.m., depending on the day. Right now in Saint-Aignan, the sun comes up at 8:22 and goes down at 5:06. That makes for a pretty short day.
Sunrise over the vines on December 1
Often, the sunrise is very beautiful. Now we're going into a rainy weekend, but temperatures are still mild. They say we've had the warmest autumn ever. We still have flowers growing in planters and window boxes outside. It's amazing, when you think that we are actually located at a more northerly latitude than Montreal or Minneapolis, for example.
