I guess that autumn is slowly creeping up on people in the part of the world where there are 4 seasons. But summer is apparently still lingering – I spoke to my brother yesterday who told me that he and his girlfriend had spent the weekend at the summerhouse, relaxing out on the deck, and walking on the beach… A real Indian summer (Brittsommar (SV), l’été indien (FR), veranillo de San Martín / Miguel (SP)), how lovely!
Personally, I love autumn, and it is probably the season I miss the most on this island of perpetual summer (ok, maybe we have two seasons, as it is officially hurriance season at the moment). I dream of creeping up under a blanket, light a few candles, drink hot tea and read a book… but I will just have to wait until winter, which it will be before we are back in Europe again.
Even though I love autumn, I also think that the Scandinavian summers are special, and I still smile when thinking back on my stay in Sweden this summer. Here are some summer photos to keep you warm and fuzzy while the weather turns colder and grey.
