London was filled with every shade of orange. The paths and pavements coated in crunchy, crispy leaves. The air felt cooler, with days of bright sunshine followed by days of thick fog. Scarves were retrieved from the back of wardrobes, as window displays twinkled with the promise of the arrival of Christmas. The days became shorter, as hot chocolate was brewed and heating turned on for the first time. That was Autumn.
Santiago is alternating between days filled with sunshine and blue sky, teamed with days with more wind in the air, and the need for a thin cardigan. Fragrant flowers are in full bloom, and trees filled with sweet fruit. Sunglasses and sandals are retrieved from the back of wardrobes, as window displays brim with bright clothes with the promise of the arrival of Summer. The days are becoming longer, as ice-cream is eaten and windows are opened. This is Spring.
Plums: I’ve skipped from beautiful Autumn in London to beautiful Spring in Santiago, which feels like Summer to me, as it seems to be getting hotter each day. My Spring photos were taken in Carlos’ mum’s garden, which is just outside of Santiago and is an oasis of colour and fragrance.
Which season are you currently enjoying?
Have a wonderful weekend ahead!
