Who loves Autumn?

I love picking Blackberries and squirrelling them away in the freezer for fruit crumbles later in the year.

I love the vivid sunsets which we seem to have more of at this time of year and I like to shut out the darkness and light scented candles to make the room cosy and inviting.
