the scents.... the seasons...

the cotton curtains fluttering in the wind as if they are dancing to the tunes of a rainfall.
i love rainy mornings.,

the envelope of comfort the rainy mornings give you is immense and the sound of the rain,
rains are giving way for the mellow autumn.
A dusky light entering the living room ..

Its been some days since its rained here.
my mind still revolves around the raindrops still falling steadily.
some dried flowers and leaves show me how much i love them still.,.,
the season of joy and cheer and scents...
they seem to have been from the last autumn......

i am looking forward to the season change for,
baking in something with figs from the market..
waiting for the boutiful greens from the garden..
to spent a lot of time under those same blankets and in the kitchen.
listening to my favourite songs and concocting new recipes to share with both my family... and you.
cook a stew with potatoes and onion and curry leaf, to fill your home with the scents of the season...
I cant think of all the scents of Autumn,but you probably have a favourite too?
