Summer’s End

In the Northern hemisphere the days are getting shorter, there’s a chill to the wind and slowly the leaves start to change colour. I can always tell it’s autumn when I step outside and breathe in the air. Every season has a particular scent and autumn’s scent is one of the most distinct – rich, earthy, and tangy.

Doesn’t sound bad at all. And as much as I miss the long, hot, lazy days of summer, I’m also looking forward to autumn, the season of harvest.

“A magic dwells in each beginning” – a quote by Hermann Hesse and I think it fits the changing seasons very well.

The changing of the seasons is something magical. It’s a goodbye and a hello at the same time, a bit of sadness, a bit of anticipation.

A week or so ago I asked on my facebook page what people associate with autumn. Some were looking forward to lower temperatures, others mentioned less tourists in their area and yet others mentioned books, and apple cider.

That’s just a very short list of all the lovely things autumn has in store for us and I decided to make my own list with the help of pictures taken in InWorldz. Because as the days get shorter and the temperatures outside lower, we will spend more time indoors and log in to virtual worlds. 😉

With the end of summer there will be less tourists! So if you live at the coast, the beach is yours again!

Then, of course, as autumn is the season of harvest, there will be all sorts of delicious fruits and veggies ready for you. To me, autumn also means home made apple pie! And it’s so much nicer to bake when the hot temperatures of summer aren’t turning your kitchen into an oven.

And then, after a day in the autumn glory, it’s time to come home and relax with some apple cider, wine, and a good book.
