Autumn Leaves


Autumn has to be my favourite time of year.

The heat has subsided but it is not yet totally freezing cold. This means a chance to change the wardrobe and rug up a little in comfortable, cosy knitwear. However there is not yet the need to lug your whole winter wardrobe around with you to stave off freezing to death.

And there are still some fine sunny days that lure you out into the world, like today.

I love the change in scenery that this season brings too. The leaves have changed colour to yellows, oranges and reds bringing a whole new feel to the outdoors. A real treat that reminds me of childhood is kicking my way through piles and piles of fallen leaves.

Autumn does mean though, that winter is definitely coming.

  1. This makes me think of that Leunig poem about the coming of winter. “Let us prepare for winter … It is time to go inside. It is time for reflection and resonance. It is time for comtemplation. Let us go inside.” Of course, it’s almost summer here in Australia so, for us, it’s time to go outside! That said, I’m off to the US in twelve days where it is almost winter so your post has helped turn my thoughts towards the cold time.
