“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!

Autumn’s fruit – conkers and acorns © Lisa Shambrook
Acorns, conkers, horse chestnuts, hazelnuts…
not the actual nuts, but I love acorn cups, shiny conkers and nut shells!
Ward off the chill © Lisa Shambrook
Hunting out your favourite hats and gloves,
twining soft scarves around your neck and wrapping up in the chill.
Boots… © Lisa Shambrook
Boots…need I say more?
Discover discoveries… © Lisa Shambrook
Apples are finally in season and our trees offer a
harvest of Discoveries and Worcester,
and then I enjoy my most favourite Russets.
Soft woolly jumpers! © Lisa Shambrook
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.
Time to dress up – way back in the year 2000! © Lisa Shambrook
Halloween, the best chance of the year to dress up and have fun!
Don’t ever miss a hug… © Lisa Shambrook
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 magic… © Lisa Shambrook
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…Mmmm… © Lisa Shambrook
Hot Chocolate… hot chocolate with marshmallows (if that’s your thing) and cream,
wrap your hands around a mug and stay warm!
Glitter in the sky! © Lisa Shambrook
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…
Soup and bread… © Lisa Shambrook
Soups and casseroles, and fresh bread. My favourite is butternut squash
seasoned with black pepper and thyme…
Dragon smoke… © Lisa Shambrook
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?
