A Feel for Autumn
My favourite season of the year used to be Spring. A time of hope. A time of new beginnings. This year the Spring failed to live up to expectations too. The cold and wet weather didn't give seedlings a good start and many plants failed to come to fruition.
We are now heading towards the Autumn. My ideal autumnal day would be a crisp cool day with a cornflower blue sky. A slight chill in the air in the morning and at night. Autumn is a time for long walks in the countryside and foraging for berries and nuts.
I have high hopes for Autumn. I hope she doesn't let me down.
Edited: I do try to extract the best not only out of each season but also out of every day. I look for the positive in every situation but sometimes this can get very wearing. I am finding life quite challenging at the moment and regularly picking myself up and dusting myself down repeatedly does begin to take its toll.
Life has been frenetic in the these past few months. I am looking forward to a time of peace and quiet reflection. Wishing a quiet time to all of you who seek it too. x
