Originally, when I was young it was because my birthday was in October and the new school started in September. This was reason enough to love the season. Nothing to do with the colours and the beauty of this time of year.
Now for me, Autumn stills starts at the beginning of the school year, I send my eldest off in her new uniform all smart and shiny and bright.
Then it is my youngest's birthday, so still about the birthdays.
Then mine, I have no photo recording this so instead I will put one of the pictures that symbolise autumn for me.
Nice weather for ducks!
Then, of course comes pumpkins and Halloween
and conker hunts.
At this time of year my road looks gorgeous.
And for me Autumn finishes on Bonfire Night...
Now roll on the cold winter, where it's all about Christmas and being cosy. (Love that too...)
