Hello English Muse readers! Karen from A Simple Cup of Tea once again. This week I want to talk about my absolute favourite season. Autumn.

It’s in the air here in Belgium. Autumn has only just arrived with yesterday’s equinox but it’s already gotten a tad colder over the past week and a bit. The leaves are just slightly beginning to turn and I’m dreaming of boots and knee-high socks again instead of sundresses.

Children have gone back to school, Ostend is getting a bit quieter without all of the tourists and the beach is suddenly vast and beautiful again instead of filled with people. Do I sound like an old angry woman? Perhaps. But apart from those practical things the sunsets are nothing short of glorious at this time of year.

Autumn is for me a time to appreciate change.

What about you? What is it about autumn (or fall) that you love?

  1. Fall has also come to Denmark, so chilly.. But it is my favourite season; the colours, the clothes, the food (I love soups!), the weather even! Just hope I can get to enjoy this fall a little despite writing my final thesis at university. And evil as I am, I hope it will rain a lot! Ha!

  2. Autumn has reached Cornwall with storm-tossed seas and torrential rain – exhilarating and beautiful. This is what I love about autumn – the colours, of course, and the wild harvest, but mostly the wild weather broken by days of gentle sunshine and delicious smoky scents.

  3. those colors are glorious! we’re still experiencing 90 degree weather where i live. I am so ready for the kind of warmth that only cool weather can bring!
