seasonal change of clothing.

Thursday October 8th: Cold dew
Cold dew comes after the rainy season in autumn during the cold mornings and evenings. Because of this, plants become wet with dew. You’ll have some nice weather during this season, so it’s a good time to change your wardrobe. The fragrant olive smells are so nice, reminding me that autumn has arrived.
