Today I fondly remember four times when autumn showed itself most clearly to me here in Italy and there in Slovenia.
Usually I have a look in the archives for such a challenge and take what calls out to me, but this time I had four days in mind already and only had to search them out. Let’s see:
- October 30, 2020: This was The Last Day I Saw Something New. After that a long lockdown began and I don’t think I went out of municipality until May. I spent this glorious day in Torre Alfina in Lazio alone with bestia and was not sorry for a moment.
- October 12, 2018: This was the first time I saw my childhood garden in autumn colours again after moving to Tuscany five years prior. I always go back to visit in the summer or winter, never in the spring or autumn. The view of the garden through my parents’ window, featured above, left me in awe.
- October 13, 2018: The second day of my visit sister took me to the Tivoli Park in the middle of Ljubljana and I remembered all the times I walked our first dog, or how I would park there and took the dog to the office with me. I worked for the magazine for Slovenians living abroad. Go figure.
- September 3, 2021: Most recently autumn announced it was coming in Padua three weeks ago. Only one tree was dressed for the occasion but it stole all the glances.
Here are the days in the above order. The first gets four photos, for all the rest there are two per each.
I’m excited because tomorrow we are going on another road trip to unknown places to the right of Lake Bolsena and I’m pretty sure colours will be in this palette and the ugly dry yellow of the land will be defeated by the gold of the trees.
