Autumn, the time of year that Keats called the 'Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness'. It is a season famous for its harvest time, cooling temperatures and darkening nights and, most notably, for its Autumn leaves - a spectacular transformation from lush greens to stunning displays of red, gold and brown. It's no wonder that writers, poets and artists throughout history have found it such an abundant source of inspiration. Autumnal celebrations include the Harvest festival - a gladness for the fruits of the earth mixed with a certain air of melancholy linked to the imminent arrival of bleak weather.
Embrace the crisp air and celebrate with our top Autumnal finds at Grays.
