A Little Competition about Autumn, because I’m missing it.

As much as I’m loving this sudden (albeit tardy) attack of summer sun, I can’t help but feel a little bereft of our season of much-anticipated mellow fruitfulness. I LOVE Autumn, and I’m more than a little excited about its arrival. In a wishful, misguided attempt to speed it on its misty way, I thought I’d launch a competition in its honour. It is supposed the Autumn term, after all.
