Easing into winter…

Posted on
A ‘few’ pumpkins at the Pumpkin Farm Stall.

I’m back with the topic of autumn.

It is an ending and a beginning at the same time. The end of summer, and intense heat. The end of growth – in nature, that is. The end of having to swim or take cold showers three times a day to cool off. The end off lying awake at night, too hot to breathe.

The beginning of the slow glide into winter. The beginning of starting to wear cardigans, and long sleeve T’s. The beginning of taking an early bath and putting on PJ’s to spend the rest of the evening cozy on the couch. The beginning of a different menu – more stews, soups and other comfort food. The beginning of nature’s regeneration through winter.

No wonder it is so many people’s favourite season…

"No spring nor summer's beauty
hath such grace,
As I have seen in one autumnal face... "
