As the weather gets colder, the leaves turn from being green to a display of vivid colors. There are so many beautiful Autumn days. The leaves change color and it isn't too hot or too cold.
The leaves start to fall, the birds go, but the colorful reds, oranges, and yellows in the landscape are breathtaking. Not only can you snuggle inside, but fall is also my favorite season because it's perfect for taking photos.
For me, fall is a time to prepare for rebirth but also to practice my cozy routines, enjoy hot chocolate, and take walks in the crunchy leaves.
To prepare for winter animals gather food and start the hibernation process, squirrels store acorns, and trees shed their leaves in preparation for the cold. This long rest will be a blessing when nature awakens in Spring.
So, too, most people use autumn to prepare for Winter. There's nothing quite like having a warm cup of tea with a comfy thick blanket and reading a comforting work of fiction.
I've decided to share my favorite autumn-related quotes with you to celebrate this lovely fall season!
