“Listen! The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!”
Autumn is my most favourite season, closely followed by Winter…
find out why and tell me why you love Autumn too!
Watching dawn’s sliver of pink spread across the indigo sky…
Acorns, conkers, horse chestnuts, hazelnuts…
not the actual nuts, but I love acorn cups, shiny conkers and nut shells!
Hunting out your favourite hats and gloves,
twining soft scarves around your neck and wrapping up in the chill.
Boots…need I say more?
Apples are finally in season and our trees offer a
harvest of Discoveries and Worcester,
and then I enjoy my most favourite Russets.
Jumpers. I’m Scrooge when it comes to turning on the heating,
so I grab a jumper instead. Find your favourite cable knit and stay warm.
Halloween, the best chance of the year to dress up and have fun!
Cuddles to keep warm, nothing better than cosying up with the ones you love.
Hugs, especially when they last over a minute, make you feel good!
Cuddle on the sofa and enjoy the new season of TV after summer’s screen drought.
Jackets, leather ones to be precise…
I live in my leather jacket and love slipping back into it!
Twilight and dusk…I adore being able to stand in the chill of evening and stare up at the stars. Darker evenings give me a sense of adventure and awe.
Hot Chocolate… hot chocolate with marshmallows (if that’s your thing) and cream,
wrap your hands around a mug and stay warm!
Fireworks! Watch the sky light up with sparkles of fire on the 5th of November!
Leaves…the turning of the leaves as the trees shed their summer apparel.
The colours of autumn delight, inspire and invigorate me…
Soups and casseroles, and fresh bread. My favourite is butternut squash
seasoned with black pepper and thyme…
The enticing hint of frost that makes our breath swirl like dragon smoke!
…and the fact that after Halloween – Christmas is on its way… Yay!
“It was a beautiful bright autumn day, with air like cider
and a sky so blue you could drown in it.”
Diana Gabaldon, Outlander
Why do you love Autumn?
I smell all the things of fall reading this post. I love woolies, apples, hot chocolate, my electric blanket (sad, but true), cuddling with my cats, putting on the fireplace, making pots of soup, yes picking apples and pumpkins too. ❤ ❤ ❤
I especially Like the smells of autumn: fire smoke, dried leaves, the chilling air. etc.
One of my favourite things is September, because September has a fragrance that hits me so hard, just beautiful. I love when you read something evocative and it comes alive! Thanks, Tess.
Fall is late here this year. The trees are only half glammed up for the last party of the season. 🙂
We’re in full swing, but it’s still warm…though they’re forcasting snow this winter, which we don’t often get! Autumn just beats Winter to my favourite!
