Favorite Season

Now that I am an adult, my favorite season is Autumn. The colors of the leaves are so beautiful and I enjoy the cooler temperatures. However, when I was growing up I hated the fall because my parents always made me and my sister rake the leaves. Where we lived we had many trees so you could imagine how many leaves we had to shovel.

The other day while letting the kids ride their bikes I took my camera along and took these pretty pictures.

"I love fall! Fall is exciting.
It's apples and cider.
It's an airborne spider.
It's pumpkins in bins.
It's burrs on dog's chins.
It's wind blowing leaves.
It's chilly red knees.
It's nuts on the ground.
It's a crisp dry sound.
It's green leaves turning
And the smell of them burning.
It's clouds in the sky.
It's fall. That's why...
I love fall."
