The world around us is beautiful any time of the year. But the golden autumn is a time unlike any other… Orange, yellow and crimson leaves covering the ground with a speckled carper. A harvest of fresh fruits and vegetables, bright autumn bouquets… a brief sunny old wives’ summer and rainy grey days… first morning chills and the timid first snow… These warm and lovely moments are to be remembered and recalled again and again during the frosty snowy winter.
