My favourite season of the year.

14 10 2008

Autumn has always been my favourite time of year, I love the warmish days and the crisp cool nights where you either need the extra blanket or the good old flannels.  I like being able to wear jeans and a light sweater with out suffocating from the heat or freezing to death.  But most of all I love the colours.  I love the changing leaves and the piles they make on the ground, or the crunch when you walk through it. 

Here in NL the fall is similar to the fall in the cities of Ontario, but to be honest it doesn’t come close to the colours you find up north (naturally).   But regardless I still like the cooler temps and the changing season.  Granted in this country I won’t have the winters that I’m use to, and well maybe that won’t be a bad thing. 

Frank took some nice pictures on the weekend on our ride home from Nijkerk.  He has a mushroom thing going here.                                                           

It was a beautiful autumn day on our way to Nijkerk and back, the sun was out and it didn’t start to get cold until we hit the outskirts of Amersfoort.  Even today was a great autumn day to head by bike to the grocery store.  I wish this could be the weather year round.  Hopefully tomorrow will be another beautiful autumn day, before the winter rains come.
