Two more sleeps until it’s officially Autumn…
With the sting of Summer fading the warmth of still days and falling leaves symbolise stripping yourself bare of the old awaiting the new; relying on your insightful intuition for the foresight of compassionate self-nourishment that builds strengths to nurture and sustain you through the bitter lifelessness of Winter’s chill and internal shadows; then gracefully you’ll unfold to greet the rejuvenating rays of spring awakenings, allowing you to blossom into beautiful layered petals of your flourishing renewal, of whom you wish and hope such tender nurturing enables you to be.

I love Autumn. My favourite season. The warm days to enjoy the sunshine, cool nights for snuggling, and beautiful shades of amber and auburn on the trees. Perfect. x
Living in Victoria Autumn can really be a beautiful sight. Thanks for stopping by Jodi. 🙂 Xx

Autumn is my favourite season! Cool, crisp mornings; clear, balmy, sunny days; and nights cool enough to snuggle under the doona….. but not cold enough for jumpers and tracky daks yet!
It certainly is the best season for enjoying sleep I think Mehe l. I love the balmy sunny days too. Thanks for stopping by 🙂 Xx

Autumn is my 3rd favourite season. The weather is perfect, but I dislike the fact that it”s a sign that winter is coming. Sorry Autumn .
Poor Autumn… none of us like what it is preparing us for… bloody cold mornings! Thanks for stopping by Sarah 🙂 Xx
Autumn is my favourite season too, but we don’t get a lot of change on the Gold Coast. I have very fond memories of Fall from when we lived in Canada for a year – the changing leaves were so beautiful.
Oh, how awesome it must have been to witness such beauty in Canada Kathy. Thanks for stopping by 🙂 Xx

So beautifully written Sandra. I am not a fan of winter so Autumn is always a little bittersweet for me… I need to learn to embrace it for its own beauty and stop comparing it to the thrill of Spring which is what I do xx
Yes, spring has a certain buzz about it doesn’t it Sonia. Thanks for stopping by 🙂 Xx

You know Sandra up here it’s still a balmy 31 and we had the air con on last night! I’m in a singlet and shorts. I do love seasons but also love the endless summer. Autumn is probably one of the best months on the Gold Coast because the humidity disappears x
Gosh, it’s hard to imagine the difference in the same season from one state to another. I bet you are glad to wave the humidity goodbye. Thanks for stopping by Em. Xx
This is beautiful, Sandra! Autumn and spring are my favourites, and after our Qld summers, it’s always a relief x
I’m an Autumn and Spring girl to Lisa! Not so many flies. Thanks for stopping by 🙂 Xx
