Fall colours delight in Endiang

Traditionally the full moon in September is called the Harvest Moon. However, when the full moon occurs on the autumnal equinox as it did last Thursday, it is called a Super Harvest Moon. This is rare occurrence and comes but once every 20 years. Farmers are in hopes that the moon change and equinox will bring forth an excellent session of harvest weather.

In recent days, the fall colours are apparent everywhere as the trees and bushes display vivid shades of yellow, orange and red.
