As you might’ve realised by now, Autumn is my favorite time of the year.
It’s such a feast for the eyes, that the perfect way to celebrate Autumn would be a little hashtag, introducing #openuptoAutumn
Now is the time to share your Autumnal photographs and for all those burnt oranges and warm mustard shades to come to the fore.
Here are my personal reasons for loving Autumn.
1- The bright, crisp mornings and that Fresh Air smell.
2- The gentle warmth of the sun, lower in the sky.
3- The gradual turning of the leaves to brilliant fiery colours.
4- Multiple squirrels pottering around the garden, stashing bits of food in places only they’ll remember.
5- The berries on the bramble bush, and the apples in the trees. It is the perfect time for foraging (sloe gin anyone?)
6- That new beginning feeling which comes at the start of September. Time for a clearout- mentally and physically. Stick it on eBay or take it to the charity shop
7- There are plentiful reasons for new shoes, and boots. There’s a slight chill to the air now.
8- Meals can now include the oven again, and the home cooking menu changes to stews, pies and soups. Mmmm, comfort food.
9- The fact it is cold enough to use the fire.
10- The blanket of colour when the leaves eventually fall and the crisp, crunching noise they make.
11- The colder days means you can break out your fave knitwear!
12- Snuggling under lots of blankets watching a film.
13- Sleepy weekends because of the dark mornings – everyone in our house sleeps in!
