Long strolls and pumpkin soup

The leaves changed color. Days are getting shorter and shorter. The first snow has already passed. Days are getting colder. Every day more and more trees lose their fall foliage. But that is no excuse not to go for long strolls in the woods and one more reason to treat and warm oneself with a pumpkin soup afterwards.
