Autumn's arrived

I think there might be a law in England, some sort of secret unwritten ruling, that says you must say two things as soon as autumn arrives.

1. "Ooh, the nights are drawing in!"
2. "Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness."

Monty and I went for a walk today down one of the local bridleways. The horses had only just gone past, and the ground was churned up and smelt of damp and winter. Everywhere there are brambles and elderberries. And as I stopped to take a picture, with Monty sat at my feet, I found myself saying, to the open air "It's the season of..." and stopped myself just in time.

Happy Autumn, everyone. I challenge you to see how many times you say Those Phrases.
