Ode to Autumn

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. Who has not read the Ode to Autumn by John Keats? If not, you can access it here. I am always amazed that as soon as Kay ends her school summer holidays and starts yet another academic year, nature flicks a switch. The air turns crisper, the trees change colour and there is condensation on my windscreen when I get into the car first thing. Every year it surprises me. On 31 August it is summer, but come September - bang - Mother Nature has done it again.

So glad that underneath it all you can still see the beauty that surrounds you.

Hi Rosiero, Love the picture. You do write beautifully and movingly. It is wonderful to watch the seasons. David Attenborough was saying (this morning on the radio)that people are losing touch with all that surrounds them (the earth, the scenery, the seasons, life)...I think when we can keep in touch with it - it helps us all a great deal. I've been through a rough two years and feel I am just coming out of it. Being out and about really helps. Absolutely.
