Fun Monday # 137 A love of Autumn
This week Hoosier Girl over at The Coffee Table has set us the task of......
Showing or telling what we love about fall (or as we would call it Autumn) - images, smells, sights, activities.
So what does autumn mean to me:
Animals get ready to hibernate, well my tortoises do and I watch the squirrels gathering food for the long winter months ahead.
Umbrellas come out for rainy days- actually this is something I don't like about autumn
Trees change colour and lose their leaves. I love walking at this time of the year.
Unpredictable weather- it can be warm, frosty, foggy, cold, or damp, rainy, and windy.
Mid-day sun is a real pleasure on some autumn days. Last week I was still able to sit outside and enjoy the warmth. When it gets too cold and we have frosty mornings I still hope for some sun to help the day along.
Nights draw in, and whilst I'm not that keen on the long dark winter, there is something quite nice about being indoors, with the curtains closed, tucked up and cosy. I've even been thinking about having a real fire this year.
I leave you with an autumn picture of my garden which I have used before but it looks very much the same every year.
