Fall Begins 09-22-17

What is your favorite thing about Fall?

I love the changing colors. I love curling up on the sofa with the hubby, the cats and a good, scary book. Call me crazy, but I also love stormy days.

Fall, hmmmm
I like the colors, the cooling temps and the first of the rains.

I look forward to smelling it changing. It's probably the change in temps but I experience it through smell.

If you are in the high desert in the fall, here in southern California, you can smell the great basin sage. The moisture in the air, in the late evening or early morning is a giveaway that fall is here.

Love that....

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to swim by and join in the conversation. I love the transitional months when the temperatures are, well, more temperate. I especially enjoy the coziness of curling up with a good book on a chilly fall night. I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer! What is your favorite season?

I really love Winter. I enjoy colder weather, wrapping up warm and hoping for snow!

I love snow but we haven't had any in London for quite a while now.

I was just at the Castle Gates, watching the leaves fall.... and drift.....

Does anyone know what that beautiful red tree is?

Some sort of Maple?

My fave seasons are Spring and Autumn.
Summer and winter are so extreme!

Springtime - love everything starting anew....smile....
Autumn/Fall - fave memory is driving through Europe - absolutely beautiful! (ETA - Ooh, drove through Tasmania too! Fantastic!)
Summer - soooo hot! But...love my pool! And watermelon.....
Winter - been so sick this year....

The tall red-leafed one looks like a Japanese Red Maple but I have never seen one soooo tall. It is...and they are....beautiful trees.

Thanks LJ.

Thought it might be a Japanese Maple - we have one in our front garden, but the leaves are a little bit more thin and pointed, so I wasn't sure...

I love the transitional weather between Spring and Summer.

Edited to add:
Here is a poem I wrote long ago about my favorite season.

The Season of Myself

The season of myself is the sprimmer.
My mind and body do not want
to give up the cool days of deep spring,
nor do they want the unbearable heat of deep summer.

I love Spring,I plant boatloads of bulbs & wait all winter for them to raise their little heads.It makes me smile & I know the cold,wet UK winter is over.

Having said that one year I was driving on a motorway,in Autumn through Massachusetts & the colours of trees was sensational.

Don't apologize! I think we all love celebrating the changing of the seasons, no matter what it may be.

That's my favorite time of year, too. People think I am crazy, but when there is a gently falling snow blanketing the ground in the early morning - everything is silent and still...there is a sense of peace.

Fall - the sizzling summer temps have receded and we can finally turn off the A/C, open the windows, and best of all, walk the dog

I won't be able to complete the fall challenge this year. Will be out of town Nov 1st through 10th. I didn't complete it last year either - same reason. Sigh.

Here in Australia spring is starting to spring. The frogs in the creek are getting very noisy and the birds are getting territorial.
I still find it weird being our of sync.
