I love this season, love everything about it. I think its mostly the promise of cooler weather, the relief from that exhausting humidity that comes with our summer and the memories it brings back to mind.
I love the rich colours nature uses to paint her way, the madness of the March winds, the falling leaves. I remember as a child running though the newly gathered piles of leaves, that crunching sound under ones feet, the earthy scents, as leaves went flying. I remember toasting marshmellows on the end of long sticks and watching as the flames from burning leaves melted the sticky sweetness.
Its a season that really inspires me in my crafting, I could do "autumn" all year long!
