Autumn cometh

If winter is my season, then autumn precedes and delights as well, the entrée before the main course. The hues, the tones of autumn and winter are central to my life, to my spirit and as the days close in, as the mornings and evenings become fresher and nippier, so the mood improves and the colours are easier on the eye, the mist and drizzle comforting.

the bird, girl and autumn

Arbres remplis de fruits qu’en cette saison la nature
Nous donne généreusement !
Gaieté dans les vignes où les raisins bien mûrs
Sont cueillis en chantant.

Premiers brouillards et champignons cachés des bois
Nonnettes voilées, bolets bais…
Sous les noyers les enfants cherchent les dernières noix
Que le vent fait tomber.

Jean-Claude Brinette

    rain and wind aside, I love the colours of Autumn. Plants in decline have a certain beauty

    All the better with well selected images and colours.

    These images would also suit Albinoni’s Adagio.

    I love Autumn but I miss the warmth of an English summer…

    Nature uses her broadest brush and warmest colors in Autumn making it my favorite season. Time to start putting the garden to bed in anticipation of spring.
