Goodbye summer, hello fall

NORTHBOROUGH – A Northborough resident recently snapped a photo of her dog, Violet, curiously investigating a flower. 

“She seems to be thinking that soon summer will be over and she won’t be able to enjoy the flowers until next year,” Sandy Howard wrote in an email to the Community Advocate. 

Many throughout the region have noticed a rather sudden drop in temperatures in recent days and weeks as summer weather gave way to cooler fall air late last month.

Howard lives in Northborough and notes that she enjoys capturing slices of the local life and landscape.
