The arrival of September brought with it the subtle changing of seasons. Autumn has slowly crept in, and is making her appearance ever so slightly here in southern Denmark. As Lucy and I take our morning walk through the forest, we can see the changes around us. The leaves are turning golden, mushrooms are springing up on the forest floor, and the blackberries are starting to ripen on the briars. Although the sky is blue and the sun shines, the air has also changed. There is a crispness to it, which holds the promise of cooler days and cozy afternoons snuggled up inside. Soon we will have to bring out our winter clothes, thick jackets and boots. I am anticipating many nights ahead in front of the sewing machine, churning out soft pants and dresses for the children to wear.
