While warm summer is probably my favorite season, I have a soft spot for fall.  It's a colorful season full of reds, oranges, and other fiery colors. It means cuddling with blankets, wearing cute scarves, and sipping warm cups of tea.

But mostly I love fall because it reminds me of one of my favorite childhood fairy tales called, "The Leaf in the Shape of a Key" by Joan Aiken. It's about boy who rides his bike beneath trees in fall, catching all shapes and colors of leaves. The last leaf is in the shape of a key, and it opens a door in the base of a tree.

I rode my bike under a lot of trees as a kid hoping to recreate the magic, but unfortunately, it's a little less whimsical when you live in a neighborhood of pine trees.

Still, fall is a time of nostalgia for me and the photograph “Skin and Bones” by Thechildrensang really keyed into my memories.

The reason I started reading this article was because it said "Autumn". Every time I see that word, it just makes me happy because I know I can except lots of warm and cozy colours. Often when autumn is coming close I'm firstly thinking of rainy, gray and boring days - but there is so much more to it! Suddenly all the leaves changes colours and makes the forest look like it's on fire.
And of course, the reason to by a new scarf and use ear-cushions (Or whatever they're called), and be all cozy in the sofa with a gigantic cup of tea.

My latest favorites with the interpretation autumn:

And oh my gosh, this comment became really long... xD

I've always loved fall because of the leaves, less humidity, and the beautiful sky on a clear day. It reminds me of when I was younger. :heart:

This is one of my favourites: [link] :meow:

I love the features by the way. :la:
