Hello Autumn



You can’t beat a romantic ruin in autumnal light. Come and rescue me Sir Lancelot.

In the last few days the weather has been getting colder, there are leafs on the ground, and its just feeling all a bit autumnal.

Now I know the internet is full of love for autumn, and as always I’m a little late to the party. For weeks people have been talking about cosy jumpers, halloween, and Pumpkin spice (what even is that? everyone seems to love it, but I’m not sure I fancy mixing a root vegetable with my coffee,I’m traditional like that.) But I love autumn, like really love it; I’m getting exiting about it halfway though summer (and when I say summer, I mean that one sunny week that the English count as summer.) Autumn is the season to get things done, I find the colder weather energising, and inspiring, compared to the lethargy of lazy summer days. So whilst the days may be colder, and nights darker and longer, I do enjoy the season that heralds winter.

Living in England I may count myself lucky to be visited by all the seasons, and as such, can witness the change in nature. The light becomes softer, less harsh than high summer, and can make the most boring of view look more romantic. I am lucky to live near a park where I can see the change of colour in the trees on my walk in to town. Recently this change in the colour of the leaves has become much more noticeable, and the fallen leaves carpet the pavement. In my mind it is the most attractive season.


I found this peacock wondering around whilst on my lunch break last week.


With falling leaves, comes colder weather, and with colder weather comes  warm and cosy jumpers. Whilst I love wondeing  round the garden in nothing but a summer dress, I love cosy jumpers more. This is something that my friends have come to know me for, I just love being warm and cosy; Who doesn’t want to wear something that makes them feel like a teddy bear.

On the subject of being warm and cosy, Autumn is also the time of year that I enjoy a good hot drink more than ever. People often wonder why we British are so keen on tea, but when the climate is so cold, you can’t beat a good hot beverage. Even the though of curling up under a blanket with my hands warmed by a mug of hot tea/coffee/hot chocolate makes me want to run to the kitchen and put the kettle on.

I’m not necessarily a lazy person, but I am prone to marathoning TV series on Netflix, or just something I’ve seen a hundred times before. Now this is something you can’t really get away with in the summer when every bone in your body is determined to see every second of sun. whilst when things start getting colder it is perfectly acceptable nay compulsory to curl up inside watching movies.

On this note, whist in the summer I can be found laying on a bench with my nose in the book sipping gin and tonic, the autumn brings me inside to my little reading nook all curled up and draining mugs of hot chocolate. It’s also the perfect time of year for a good horror story; so I am now off the scare myself witless by reading the Ghost stories of Henry James.
