Bike ride re-fuelling is always NECESSARY and it's time to kiss goodbye to iced coffees, freshly pressed juices and smoothies and yoghurt and crumbled nuts and seeds. Autumn brings hot drinks laced with a syrup of cinnamon or ginger, and heavier oat flapjacks or granola bars wrapped in foil and SQUIRRELLED away at the bottom of satchels.
Autumn SHOWERS too, are heavier, filled with might and persistence. Gusts and WHOOSHES of winds blow leaves and fasten them like glue, dotted prettily along walkways and pavements. The air smells of coal fires, dampness and of forests.
Soon it shall be time for socks, tights, more layers and for hats and mittens. And i am more than ready to take it all in, each and every last drop.
What's your very favourite thing about AUTUMN and what does it mean to you? I'd love to know!
