#244 syyskuu – ‘autumn month’

September 1st. The ninth lesson of Finnish month names.

August for us is SYYSKUU.
syys = autumn
kuu = month (actually ‘moon’, since a month would be ‘kuukausi’, literally ‘moon period’)

Nice and simple again. A feast of rich colours – reds, yellows, oranges, browns. Not a lot of colours yet but I expect much more towards the end of the month. Apples, berries and mushrooms abound.

Darkening nights and cooler temperatures bring a quieter lifestyle, after a busy hot summer. Time to spend more evenings at home, cosily wrapped up in a blanket.
