Autumn - Already
« on: September 02, 2009, 10:54:33 pm »
Well - none of us got a great summer - unless youre in Spain, Italy, or the States

It's now oficciallyyyyyy  Autumn

Looking out this afternoon, there are signs of leaves going yellow already, and red berries like
holly around in the woods.

Will be getting our woolies out soon and clocks will be a changing - everyone will be tidying up and getting the lawns manicured for the last time before the frosts etc...

Is it me, or has time speeded up - I think that as we get older, time speeds up, and gravity gets stronger,
but even my little girl is saying time is going fast - and when I was here age a year was a lifetimes length.

Do you feel that too?

I love Autum, that crisp fresh air!!!!! It's funny as it gets colder the moldy jumpers come out of the draw, you can smell them!!!! When we first move we took some stunning Autum tree photos in Lanark!!

I must admit I prefer autumn and winter to summer anyday.

I love being all wrapped up in Jumpers and scarfs.

I am totally addicted to coats and jackets - I have loads of them, some are years old, but there
all classics in autum colours that I drag out every year and spruce up with a new silky scarf or
knit a nice modern coloured one to go with the coats.

And I adore wearing boots, walking boots, wellie boots, leather fashion boots (but not high heels)

Looking forward to knitting some nice bits and bobs sat around a wood burning stove with a lovely
hot chocolate made with milk mmmnnnmmmnnnmmnn

Sound great, trouble is I don't knit and hot chocolate gives me migrain, can drink loads of Whiskey and be fine but Chocolate makes me ill!!!!! I love Autum colours as well, years ago I went to Sweden and noticed everyone was wearing bright colours and on return to UK we were all in very dull, dark colours, I still am but love reds, browns and greens!!! nite nite again, I AM off now, am sooooooooo sleepy!!!

Here in Belgium I have noticed a very early start to autumn. Trees turning colour, foggy mornings and a temp drop.

time to go foraging !

I don't like cold, I don't like wet, I don't like frost, I don't like snow, I don't like wind - I want the sun back.  It's too soon to be Autumn, I haven't had Summer yet.

I'm going to sulk for 10 months till it comes back
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

My husband has been saying for weeks that Autumn and Winter are here. I keep hitting him in the hope he will stop.  >:(

I'm with Annie, I'm going to sulk until we have a proper Summer!!!

According the press here (we are Irish though) it started on 1st September - we have a simple season flow here

Sept Oct Nov = Autumn
Dec Jan Feb = Winter
Mar Apr May = Spring
Jun Jul Aug = Summer

 ;D ;D ;D

Usuall dates that start withe the 21st are old Pagan festivals - i'm into that too - especially if it involves a
celebration - cheers and bottoms up ;D ;D ;D
