Autumn is LONG gone


Looking back on some of the slightly warmer times in Lappeenranta before the Snow took over in a big way I was noticing how incredibly beautiful it was here! It still is pretty, but all of the colors are now the same.  It always seems as though the leaves turn colors in one day and then they all fall off just as quickly.  

Strange thing, Autumn.  The food is most certainly the best part of the season!  Squash, Soup, Caramel Apples, everything baked, pie, pumpkin (PSLs), they should just have a seasoning called 'Autumn'.  Scented candles laced with dangerous toxins are everywhere this time of year, I love them! I do however already miss summer, so so so VERY much. 

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” 

- Lewis Carroll
