The changeable season

It's the changeable season.
Glimpses of sunshine, showers, and rainbows.
An added bit of spice with the colours
and cold hands playing with the leaves.

The wee man is coping with his own fair bit of changes.
Growth spurts.
More words, conversations, never ending babble of stories.
Big imagination.
Pushing boundaries.
Big bed,
Potty trained.

Waterproof trousers,
You are the season that draws us closer to the earth.
Mushrooms, worms, snails, sticks, mud, water, leaves.
We even sometimes bring bits of you home with us.

Fresh and crisp you tempt us,
We breathe in your sensations, 
Dance in your playful light.
You really know how to blow the cobwebs away
and inevitably draw us outside.

The days get shorter.
Time has become more of a treasure.
With you we learn to embrace the change.
Take it all one step at a time.
Stop for coffee and cake.
Smile and laugh.

Autumn you have marveled us!

I'm joining in with Older Mum (In A Muddle) and her beautiful seasonal linky One Week. A few words and photographs reflecting our experience of Autumn 2013

  1. This is a really beautiful post, both the photos and the words. I like what you have said about it being the changeable season, that is so true. And our little people are definitely changing so much as well aren't they? It made me get a little reflective after reading this. x

  2. 'The season that draws us closer to the earth' - love that line. Beautiful words, and photos. Autumn is a wonderful time of the year xx #OneWeek

  3. This is beautiful. Both words and pictures. You seem up autumn brilliantly. Thank you so much for linking up with #oneweek

  4. So lovely and, as you say, a complete contrast to my seaside one!

  5. What a beautiful post. The words are just wonderful and I love the photos too. Just lovely :)
