FUN MONDAY - FALL
Hoosier Girl wants that we show or tell what we love about fall - images, smells, sights, activities
The answer is I don't love anything in fall ! I hate this cold, humid smell in the mornings, the trees which start to striptease and the sidewalks and gardens full of brown and yellow leaves.
From my teenage years on since my early 50th I always suffered from automn depressions, without knowing it. At that time depressions were not well known. So I only have bad souvenirs of all falls in my life. I just would have liked to fall asleep in September and wake up in March, like the bears. Now since around 10 years these seasonal depressions have disappeared, but I still don't like automn although I move around and am active now. I can even appreciate the colors of the trees in a park or wood, before they rot.
I wished that after summer we could have winter immediately or summer and spring the whole year. I am probably born on the wrong side of the world !
Therefore I don't have any fall pictures to show. Besides the fact that this year all trees are still green, which is quite exceptional I don't have any from last year either. Fall just doesn't inspire me !
my cat Arthur apparently doesn't like it either, I wanted to take a "fall" picture of him and you see he fell.
But I saw this nicely decorated house yesterday when I visited my friend Ilona.
