|A beautiful overcast day|
Snuggling in my comforter still, I look out of the sole window in my room. Just yesterday I had a clear view of a snow clad Mt. Rainier but today, at dawn, there is a tinge of orange on the clouds that shroud the mountain. Light slowly spreads only to reveal a grayish blue sky.
|My Autumn Kit - A very Special one|
I sit there on my bed, partly asleep, partly awake, waiting for the sun to introduce some heat to the seemingly frigid morning. Time passes by and the chill doesn’t die down. Finally, I wake up for college only to find myself standing at the window and staring outside for some more minutes.
Even in the faint light of the overcast day, nature amazes me like it has done for the past one month, now more than ever to be frank. The shades of orange and red outside my window lit up my face and steal my sleep, because I am happy. Autumn is here and I love it.
|Fall starting to set in in Kubota Japanese Garden, Seattle|
Finally, I am starting with some Seattle insight! Been more than a month now, seasons have changed and Seattle is more beautiful than ever. The biting cold is slowly setting in, but the winds have a pleasant touch to them; fall is here so is the winter rain and the auburn tinge is enveloping nature pretty fast.
|Rings of fall, rings of fire|
Red and orange leaves are taken up by the wind and strewn around, carpeting sidewalks. Fruits and flowers burden almost bare trees and it is just so earthly everywhere, so close to nature, so dreamlike.
|Do you see the colours?|
Autumn has always been kind of a fascination for me, maybe because I was from a tropical land that had fall only in the northern states. But whatever be the reason, the fascination actually made it my favourite season! (Yes, I am still like a kid who has favourite season, flower and fruit.)
|Fall is taking over|
And experiencing the season for the first time ever has convinced me that my fascination was worth it. While the fall foliage entices almost everyone in the world, I have fallen in love with the amount of colours nature puts on a display during this season.
|Colours are everywhere|
Along with the colourful falling leaves, autumn has colourful strawberry trees, holly and honeysuckles everywhere. And just like spring, even Autumn has a flower galore! But that I would be showing to you guys in another post. For now, enjoy glimpses of the fall foliage of (read in) Seattle!
