An Autumn Love Affair…

While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day,
   And touch the stubble plains with rosy hue;
   Then in a wailful choir the small gnats mourn
   Among the river sallows, borne aloft
      Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies;
And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn;
   Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft
      The red-breast whistles from a garden-croft;
      And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.

'To Autumn' - John Keats

There’s something I come back to every Autumn, it’s comforting, warming without being bright, sumptuous without being brash or decadent, a perfect complimenter to the sounds and smells of Autumn.

It’s the colour Maroon. The perfect companion of burnt orange, honey yellow and wine red. A sweet accent against green and a standout splash against black. Perfect in the softest fabrics, cords, cotton, velvet, felt, and those with a lustre like silk and satin.
