I have a love hate relationship with Autumn. I love it for all the beautiful colours it provides us with, the yellows and reds, the brown leaf carpets. But I hate what it signifies. When Autumn arrives I know that the days are getting shorter and colder and that it is a long time until summer comes back around. These days I am trying to embrace and enjoy autumn and not wish away the next 6 months of dark days and long nights. One of the ways I want to embrace autumn is by utilising the beautiful colours that are so strong this time of year.
