the turning of the seasons

IMG_9471Summer has definitely come to an end here this last week.  I’ve got out my boots and a warm jumper. We’ve lit the first fire in the stove and reluctantly turned the heating on.  In the garden the plums on our tree are finally ripening.  Our apple trees are weighed down with fruit.  Rowan berries are bright.  A few leaves on every tree are yellow among the green.  After such a good summer, I welcome autumn: I love the brilliant colours and mild days; the yellow fields, the bales stacked high; I even enjoy trying out my warm clothes for the first time in months.  But still I feel a little heavy at the thought of  seven months of cold, layers, dark mornings and short afternoons.  I’d better enjoy this time between the seasons while I can.

I started blogging after the birth of my first child. Since I stopped working, I realise I am defined far more by my relationships than by what I do. So, I am: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend.
