Hi peeps, I have a post for you today from Cameron Richardson.
Recent discoveries by scientists have alleged that the season of autumn could be well on its way out if current climate trends continue.
Environmentalists have suggested that colours of leaves are changing days later than they were two decades ago thanks to rising temperatures across the globe. If the current trend continues, we could soon be saying goodbye to the golden hues of autumn that make this the prettiest season of all.
If you want to make the most of autumn while you still can, here are a few activities to try that will truly make you appreciate the broad spectrum of colours during this gorgeous season.
Watch the sunrise…from your bed!
On a typical October day in Britain, the sun will rise around 7am. As most of us are usually getting up this time for work, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy the autumn sunrise from the comfort of your own bed. If you’re not brave enough to go walking the dog at this hour, why not invest in a nice sturdy bed frame and mountains of duvets to keep you warm? There’s nothing quite like the sight of a rising sun over dew-covered autumn leaves, so snuggle up and admire from afar.
Enjoy a Sunday walk
Early mornings might be restricted to weekdays, but after a lazy lie in on a Sunday, there’s no better family activity than taking a stroll through the great British countryside. Wherever you are on this tiny isle, you’re never too far from a walking route. The National Trails organisation can point you in the right direction of the best nature spots out there to get a glimpse of the changing colours, so don your wellies and jackets and head outdoors.
Warm your cockles with an autumn meal
The autumn is a great time for outdoor night time celebrations from Halloween to Bonfire Night, and these can also provide a great opportunity for you to cook up a storm for guests. Have a brew of pumpkin soup on the stove while you’re watching the autumn day turn into night – the sunsets are just as beautiful as the sunrises! This is a great time of year to experiment with warming recipes such as traditional British stews, so brush up on your knowledge of seasonal ingredients and get cooking. Your guests will be queuing out the door!
What do you love most about Autumn? I love seeing the leaves change colour. On my drive home from work there is a long row of trees and it seems that every day they look more stunning, especially in the late evening sunlight. I also love having a walk outside in the cooler air, and coming home to warm up with some tea, or soup. Or making jam, or making Christmas cakes (my half term tradition)… I could keep on going!
