Could melancholia be good for you?

The melancholy of Autumn can be its glory too. Rain, wood smoke, bobble hats, jacket potatoes and gum boots. Then there is the excuse to stay in. It's Saturday, so why not stay in your pyjamas? There are books to read, things to eat in the pantry and the leaves are too wet to rake anyway. Washing won't dry, the dogs are rain shy - there are sofas, blankets, pillows, slippers and novels. Now I can't remember why Autumn is sad.


  1. Introspective time and cozy, pajama days are the best, aren't they?

  2. Any excuse to stay in and read. I guess you are enjoying sunshine and flowers and the promise of Summer where you are.

  3. We have had a lot of rain this week, but summer is coming. Right now the false indigo and all my other purple flowering plants are coming into bloom.
