“Autumn is a second spring
when every leaf is a flower.”
Albert Camus

We all know that February stands brave and alone in being the shortest month of the year, a mere 28 days (normally). It’s a shame there isn’t a longest month. Or is there??

In fact, at least here in England, there is a longest month! It’s October. The clocks just went back an hour last Saturday, so we gained an extra hour. October is therefore 31 days and 1 hour. Congratulations October, you’re the winner! If not a bit blustery.
