So, here are a few of the things I love about autumn:-
I love leaves! The colours, the sound they make when they're still on the trees and the way you can catch them as they fall and make a wish or swish through them when they're on the ground. Brilliant!
Isn't this just the most amazing thing? It came in my organic box last week and to me autumn means the end of the cricket season and the chance to cook a proper Sunday roast again instead of providing brunch as husband and sons have to dash off for a one o'clock start to a match. We had this beautiful cauliflower with roast lamb.
Despite the fact that there was very nearly a frost here last night my dahlias are still going strong and filling the garden with colour. This Bishop of Llandaff has been full of flowers for months now.
One of my absolute favourite things about autumn though is the chance to light a fire and curl up next to it with a good book.
And maybe toast a teacake or two.
So to quote George Eliot:-
'Delicious autumn! My very sould is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking successive autumns.'
Do you feel the same about autumn too?
