September days are here

There’s a quote I heard once, and it’s a long quote and I can’t remember much about it, or who said it, but I’m not that interested in that. I just like the idea of the part of the quote which goes something like this: “In September we wander thru the warm winds of summer’s wreckage.”

I love that thought.

This morning I woke up feeling really cold. Last night I opened the windows like usual, but this morning the sun was cool, the air was fresh and the bird song was replaced with the honking of Canada geese flying over the cottage at 6am.

Theo came in in the morning and, instead of cuddling up on my side of the bed and pushing me over, went to the sunny side and luxuriated in the warmth.

The weather station in the kitchen told us it was 5.2 degrees over night.

I took some photos around the cottage today and found the beautiful beginnings of the colours of autumn. The wood piles for open fires, the dried seeds, the fresh berries…fall is spreading bit by little golden bit.

I’m looking forward to curling up on the sofa in the sunshine with some lovely books. Do you love that as much as I do on these cooler days?

I’m still wearing them, but it’s time to start thinking about putting away summer flip flops and time to freshen up the sweaters and some more autumnal accessories.

And I can’t get enough of the beautiful Oxfordshire sunsets this time of year, and, when I walk down to the top of the garden to close the gate in the evening, I walk back to the house under starry skies.

I’m a little sad that our glorious summer is drawing to a close but I’m welcoming September with open arms. πŸ™‚ I think everyone’s bound to say this, but it really is my most favourite season of the year.

    Veronica, what a gorgeous sunset. I think it’s the best time of the day. Seems like summer just came and now is almost ready to leave, but, thankfully, for a whole other beautiful season..Happy Weekend..Judy

    First, I love your autumnal accessories! Next, all of your images are all quite lovely once again. I will have to enjoy Fall through your eyes because we don’t really have that season in south Florida. I look forward to the change in season on your blog.
