For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.
Edwin Way Teale
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.
Autumn begins with the subtle change in the light, with skies a deeper blue, and nights that become suddenly clear and chilled. The season comes full with the first frost, the disappearance of migrant birds, and the harvesting of the season's last crops.
