My favourite time of year is Autumn.
The air has its own Autumnal scent, the chill after months of heat, the silence after the hum of air conditioners for months.
The new ideas for meals , the ambition to bake some apple pies or make a big pot of soup.
Buying new winter clothes.
Admiring your new winter boots.
Searching for and finding a beautiful scarf to keep your neck warm through the cold months.
A fire in the fireplace.
Sipping hot chocolate instead of iced tea.
