:iconthesmallwonder:A reflection by thesmallwonder

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, I realized my pic is up there (:heart:), which made me really happy! I was just like scrolling to see all the autumnish pictures, when I realized I just saw one of my own... xD
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:
