I could easily pick autumn as my favourite season because all these pretty shades of red, yellow, and brown make me feel warm and cozy. But then it’s also that point where temperature begins to drop, days become shorter, and clothes get heavier (well hello, static electricity; we meet again!). Still though, one cannot deny the beauty that nature transforms into once the calendar hits October. My family and I went to Edwards Garden last week for a walk and it was gorgeous.
The leaves looked as if they were made of lit Christmas lights that never went off. And the dark barks of trees made this sight stand out. My favourite shade is flame-orange, such as the following photo. I’m pretty sure there was a bunch of maples trees of this shade, but I wasn’t able to take a photo because I was underdressed and the cold weather was torturing my defenseless legs.
Here are some more photos from our little trip to the park.
These pictures make me want to buy a house with a beautiful backyard that grows big maple trees that turn into different vibrant shades come fall. Transforming just like that beautiful swan from Hans Christian Andersen’s stories. I always find nature’s work fascinating and so my boyfriend has this theory about me being a hummingbird in my past life. And who knows, he might be right.
I’m ending this post with a picture of myself in a black turtleneck…with two sweaters underneath. It’s just a reminder to never again underestimate the power of fall weather. 😉
