Autumn has come to Solsonès and with it, some rains, a little cold and the first mushrooms.
In autumn, it’s raining time, it’s time to start removing the coat from the closet and changing the summer quilt for the winter.
The evergreens with deciduous leaf begin to notice the change of temperature and drop the yellowish and brown leaves that form a large sound carpet as they pass over them.
The first mushrooms appears and all those daring mushroom seekers, which in summer put their hands on their heads because of the heat they were doing, they found the first nightingales and vines, which, well hidden, tried not to be hunted.
The cold, the coats and the scarves return. Returns a plate of warm soup for dinner and that hot shower so relaxing before going to sleep. We begin to see chestnuts that bathe the ground under the chestnut trees, and of course, this indicates that we will soon see the chestnut cookers with their flame fire, hot chestnuts that we will eat at ease while paper-lined with newspapers and magazines warms us hands
And last but not least, the panellets will soon return! The round pastries of sugar, almonds and pine nuts that everybody makes at home and that causes the mouth to turn us water only to feel the smell.
In addition to all the things that come back after the summer leaves in autumn, in Solsonès, there are some fairs and events. Do you want to know what? Well keep reading!
