Love/hate affair with Autumn

Autumn is not my favourite season. I always have a hard time to accept the fact that summer is over. Every day gets shorter and darker. The weather is just the worst: cold, with a lot of rain and fog. It takes ages to get dressed in all the layers of clothing needed to go outside. Sometimes, I would just want to go hibernate until spring.

But autumn is not all that awful. Autumn festivals, pumpkins, apple pies, and roasted chestnuts makes this season bearable. Colourful sunsets are gorgeous and changing of the leaves create beautiful scenery. Yes, I have to admit, autumn is the most colourful time of the year and as such can be truly glorious.

    He he…guess where you were….Autumn Fair…ha ha. Was wonderful!
    As for the sunset looking out on the Pilatus…hmmm, you’re forgiven for being on town over… he he. Just teasing. Stunning shots. Love the Schaffhausen shot with the spiderweb.
    It is so gorgeous at the moment (well, hmmm, today is questionable)…the colours are divine.

    Autumn sounds like a pretty time still! I appreciate seasons more when I travel because we don’t have any seasons at all in Singapore. At least the season will be over soon and you can look forward to the next one. Here it’s just between hot, hotter and hottest…aside from the rainy seasons, of course..haha…:)

    I totally feel you. I love and hate autumn at the same time too. Hating the fact that summer is over and sunshine and warm days are gone. But at the same time enjoying colourful autumn foliage and crispy days. Until cold and miserable autumn rains arrive brrr and depression.

    Autumn has never been my favorite season either. The combination of cold and rain is most unpleasant (which is why I’m not a fan of spring either); I’d rather it be cold and snowy. For that reason, I much prefer summer and winter over autumn. But it does have it’s perks!
