  • Fall is my favourite season — except for all the others. That is, I am one of those happy few who embraces every season; by the time summer is coming to a close, I am sick to death of being hot and sweaty. When autumn winds down, I am ready to skate, to snow-shoe, to (very carefully) keep on cycling on, to just breathe in the cold and the blustery. But come spring, I long for the south wind's breath and the renewal that comes with the vernal equinox. And when summer rolls in at last, I've forgotten all about how sticky it can be and am ready to revel in bare flesh and hot sunlight, in patios and pints. Bring 'em on! Each of them in their proper turn! Here's to a temperate clime and changing seasons sublime.
  • it's my second fav, right below winter, I like the colors and the clam serene atmosphere we don't get on summer or spring, yet is not all filled with nostalgia as winter is for me, , there is time for everything, and people is okay with changes on autumn. but about the all shit pumpkin spiced? YUCK!! I can't stand it
  • Mostly, I'm just happy about the spookiness, the slightly less boiling weather and the opportunity to wear my 4000 different jumpers.
  • The changing colours of leaves on trees a great sight for all to see.
  • I kinda like, but it definitely comes after winter in my list of favorite seasons. :)
  • Autumn is the breathing earth exhaling in vivid colors and the scent of rich dirt. It is the amber before death, the caterpillar weaving the cacoon. It is abundant in a heartbeat and in the blink of an eye it tucks itself back into the natural cycle.
  • Cooler weather and Pumpkin fair.
  • I love the fall even if its a precursor to the severe Northeast winters...The colors are amazing every year. Yes, I look forward to pumpkin spice coffee in the morning.. We wanted to move South but that didn't work out.. Too many issues.. The housing market here is horrible. There are hundreds of homes for sale and abandoned here in Connecticut.. In a few days I'm going to dig out a winter coat and my mittens.. Here we go again..
