I realised how I notice the changes of their leaves; buds, tender leaves, colours from bright to dark green to browns, oranges and reds to bare branches and crunchiness under foot as the earth is rested and recharged.
Right now in Mid Devon the trees are on the turn, the leaves are changing colour as the energy is contracting and descending away from the extremities, moving towards the core. I feel this in myself too, a slight turning in, a move away from feeling outward and sociable towards turning inwards and a desire to conserve energy with warming food and cosiness. This feeling will increase as the moulding, earthy smell of Autumn overtakes the dampness I smell at the moment on my morning walk.
So fellow journeyers, how do you know, feel and watch the seasons change?
Have a glorious Autumnal-ish day, love Carol 🍁🍂🍃🍁🍂🍃
