I Prefer Autumn

I like things happening as usual. I was a little unsettled because of the high temperatures and the absence of rain at the beginning of this Autumn.

I love Autumn, but till this week It seamed that the summer would never end. We were wearing summer clothes and sandals. Plus, we are going thru a pretty strong drought. The reservoirs are close to empty.

We are waiting for the rain with anxiety. In other places of Spain they’ve had torrential rains but nothing over here. The landscape usually green and leafy appears dry and dusty. Some trees hadn’t change its colour yet.

I went out to take pictures of the colours of the Autumn in the forest And only have found some leaves on the floor in a very hot day. As every Autumn, the man who sells roasted chestnuts arrived with his portable stove to my street, filling everything with the nice smell of his merchandise, but it was so hot that there was no appeal to buy the hot chestnuts he was selling for 1 euro a dozen.

I would prefer a nice autumn season with rains, fresh weather, feel the cold in my cheeks, stop by the chestnut seller and buy a dozen to warm my hands and my stomach.
