Golden Autumn in Siberia

I've had pretty much interpreting and tour guiding work this week, but I just cant' help writing this blogpost about the beauty around me these days.
Now, when September has reached its middle point, it's golden Autumn here and this expression is no exaggeration. There's gold everywhere, in all city parks, streets, all around me in Novosibirsk and outside.
I can't say that autumn is my favourite season, I don't have any favourite season so far, but this period is definitely the brightest and among one of the most picturesque and beautiful ones.
The weather has been perfect the whole week, about 15 degrees in the daytime, but the sun was as warm and bright as in the middle of the summer, so one could see girls in light dresses and men in T-shirts all around.
Now when I'm looking at it, I can say that the middle of September is the right time to visit Novosibirsk and other areas in Siberia with all these trees dressed in yellow, red and still green.

A walk in the forest in autumn is fantastic. Cool air, bright colors and no mosquitoes!

The Ob in the fall
Forests are still full of mushrooms, which is surprising for the season, normally they are scarce in September, except for honey fungus. It was a nice nature's gift for us, as we went to the forest at the weekend and found enough for the dinner.

A death cap. Not edible, but looks gorgeous!
 And happy faces of my kids are the God's dearest gift to me.
