Autumn's Colours
Autumn's Colours: Glimpses, some humorous and some sad, of everyday and not-so-everyday life in a care home near you. | Nick Holloway
236 posts | 1 to read
Autumn's Colours, is Nick Holloway's first novel, a lighthearted story set in an imaginary care home in a Dorset town. The people and events in the book are based closely on real care homes, real people and real towns. They squabble, chat, fall out, banter, make friends and attempt to seduce each other - just like people in the outside world.

I am wanting to read a book about fall. Extra kudos if it is a mystery. Accepting all recommendations 🍁

After yesterday‘s storm, this morning was a riot of colours when I took my dog, Floyd for a short walk - the effect of sunlight on these trees was amazing!

I prefer Summer over any of the other season, but Fall would have to be my second choice. I like to cuddle up in a comfy chair with a good book, some music of choice, a nice snack & something warm to drink.

Autumn colours are fleeting usually in Australia. Not to mention it‘s the opposite time of the year to most of you northern hemisphere dwellers. But April to June in the Blue Mountains in NSW is spectacular. The Everglades in Leura, an historic house with 5.2 hectares of gardens which is run by the National Trust of Australia & is open to the public. I highly recommend a visit if you‘re in NSW. #Scareathlon #TeamSlaughter 6points #PointsTotal-900

Here‘s a picture of my backyard. I was going to put a book in the photo, but I didn‘t realize it was starting to rain when I went outside.

It‘s been raining for 3 days 😣 and it‘s not helping me feel better. I‘ve been sick all week which also isn‘t helping my reading.

I wish Autumn could have the same temperatures as Summer because I love all things autumn, but that means winter and snow are coming 😖

#ScreamathonPhotoChallenge #fallisbooked

4thhouseontheleft We had summer weather up until last week, you should come visit my state! (And the high today and tomorrow are back into the 80s). 😃 1mo
xicanti This is also my problem with autumn. 1mo
Laughterhp @4thhouseontheleft Ah that sounds lovely. It started actually being fall last week with 50s and 60s. I don‘t think we‘ll get to even the 70s until next year at this point. 1mo

Well, Fall here is in full swing. It‘s going on 7:30am and it is pitch black. Just a few short weeks ago it was bright by 5:30am. I am definitely going to be missing the additional hours of sunlight. Also, it‘s a lovely rainy day, and I wish I was cozied up at home with my book instead of going to work. 🖤

TheAromaofBooks The shorter days are definitely my least favorite part about winter!! 2mo
Scochrane26 I‘m having a hard time walking at night because of getting dark earlier. Got to adjust my schedule/find a new plan. 2mo
CocoReads Yes, it was dark as I drove in at 7:30 today too. I‘m excited for the cooler temps but not the extra darkness 2mo
marleed I always look forward to the hunker-down aspect of shorter days. But boy am I happy on that day in December when the days start to grow longer! 2mo

Last summer, a storm spit in half one of the trees on the road to the train station in my town.
The tree was cut down because it was too dangerous. Now, mushrooms keep spruting up near the stump.

I don't know why, l love these little guys.

The place is on my way to work and often in the morning l see new fellows peeling up.

Kimberlone Fall is the best season for dressing! We had such a hot summer, I‘m glad the temps are starting to be more consistently in the 50-60 F range where I live. Means I can start wearing my sweaters again! 2mo
Clwojick @mdm139 😂😂😂 Well have snow by then. 2mo
cherinium Definitely not fall yet where I live, either. I was happy that our high temp was only in the low 80s yesterday. I can't wait until I can turn off the AC, especially at night! 🥵 2mo

Clwojick @Mdargusch @TheSpineView @kspenmoll @Kappadeemom @mdm139 @cherinium @4thhouseontheleft It was 15c today, which is roughly 59F. I‘m loving the weather as it is, but I just wish it would stay still way longer. Our fall weather is so short here, and we have the longest winters. It‘s normally snowing from Oct- Late April, Early May. We also have a solid month or so of -50c weather around February. I need to move closer to y‘all! 🥶 2mo
mdm139 @Clwojick I was thinking I need to move closer to you. I hate the heat and love the cold and snow. 2mo
TheSpineView @Clwojick You just need to come on down! I recommend coming in February highs here are around 55 that time of year. We get very little snow and that would be in January if at all. 2mo

We spent a lot of time outside (despite it being in the 30s and so so windy) to bring all the summer stuff inside before the snow arrives today. So obviously I had to take some pictures of fall before it‘s over! 🍁🍂

And after all that work I am now finally getting warm and cozy with some books.

Great weekend at the cabin. Lots of yard work and lots of reading. We did take a drive around the lake to see the fall colors. Back home now and trying for a few more hours but won't make it to #24B4Monday - probably more like 12 which is about 10 more than I thought I'd get.
