Autumn is here!
Autumn is here. Not just because of all of those chestnut stands spotted around town, but because of the gorgeous palette of colors that now dot the horizon. There’s a subtle crispness in the air, letting us all know that winter is not far away. The wind blows through the trees and their leaves fall like confetti. They flutter about, making sounds like a bowl of Rice Krispies that never gets soggy – Snap Crackle and Pop all day long. Walking through the dry leaves is like crushing potato chips beneath my feet. I love the sounds and the colors of the fall season, and I’m especially looking forward to going to the market, to see what new produce has taken center stage. I’m imagining multicolored carrots and squash with fun shapes and names, various root vegetables and real hearty breads. Stay tuned.
For now, a small taste of autumn in Switzerland – a few of the colorful landscapes in three different cities, Zürich, Kempraten and Zug. Next up will be a real taste for me, autumn at the market!
