‘Tervuren - Autumn in Sonian Forest’

The Sonian Forest (Dutch: Zoniënwoud, French: Forêt de Soignes) at the southeast edge of Brussels is part of the scattered remains of the ancient Silva Carbonaria or Charcoal Forest.
The first mention of the Sonian Forest (Soniaca Silva) dates from the early Middle Ages.
It consists for the most part of high beech forests.

A beautiful autumn day, as we have had some this year, is an ideal opportunity for a walk in the forest.
Here are some pictures showing the colourful autumn tones.

When I was still working, autumn was always the busiest work period of the year, months with a lot of overtime and less free time. Then I heard some people say that they thought autumn was the most beautiful time of the year.

However, now that I am retired I find this season has much more wet, chilly and rather dark days and the number of nice days is quite limited. Sure this is a conclusion that I can only make with certainty for Belgium. It may be different where you live.
We have of course many days when it partly rains but also with beautiful moments. However, the number of completely beautiful days, I find too limited.
My favourite seasons are actually spring and summer.
Well, I'll have to be patient a little longer ... :) In the meantime I'm thankful that there were days like the one when I took these pictures.
