Really, I’m not sure this counts as an escape for some of us—though autumn is the favourite season of many, I can’t help but think about what its arrival means: winter is just around the corner! Still, it’s difficult to resist the joy engendered by the cacophony of colours beginning to creep along the treetops; as seems to happen every year, my porch and fireplace are both overflowing with various squashes and pumpkins as appreciated for their good looks as their taste (much to the fascination of our pets).
How about you? Have the summer linens been at last exchanged for cozy throws and richly-coloured curtains, or are you planning to grasp as tightly as you can the last threads of summer as they slip away?
Have a wonderful Monday!
Beautifully, eloquently said, dear Jen. I am powerless to autumn’s many resplendent charms and show-stoppingly stunning colours. It’s been my favourite season since day one and I highly suspect, always will be. Though it rarely lasts long at all in Canada, before Old Man Winter comes-a-knocking again, its brevity just seems to make me adore, and treasure, each precious moment of this season all the more.
It actually *snowed* here in central Ohio this morning. I couldn’t believe it! Really, autumn can’t be over *quite* so quickly.
