Undoubtedly there are things to love and hate about each season. Summer is said to be the englishman’s favourite. This is despite the fact that high expectations during May and June are most often dashed by overcast, cool, rainy and generally disappointing summer months!
I spent this weekend in Cornwall with my young man and two friends, and despite our being well into October, the weather was wonderful. At a staggering 21º beneath clear blue skies, it was far too hot for coats and we even managed a few hours in the sea! And so I have come to realise that although the good ol’ British weather may be full of surprises, not all of them are bad.
So here’s to autumn! To its misty mornings, its fiery colour, its glowing sunsets and its crisp, clean air. To the harvest, the first frost, and all things in between! : )
“Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.” – Henry Thoreau
