The clean crisp air - that wonderful harvest scent floating on the breeze.  Fall - my favorite season.

My favorite season as well and best enjoyed in the countryside or a small town harvest festival.  A much needed opportunity to chill after the hot summer.

Love the picture.

I like fall, especially what the harvest brings in like apples. But I will always be a summer person.

I do enjoy sitting around a campfire, tho

Morning...Spring is here and hopefully the warmer weather...last week we had 100kph winds coming through..my Gumtree lost a couple of branches so the Koalas aren't happy...

Yes Autumn is a lovely time of the year but we don't get the wonderful colour changes in the trees like you do.. truly a sight to behold when I see pictures from over there...

I grew up in Western PA (that's in the NE USA), I currently reside in Arkansas (south central USA). We had so many maple trees in PA, fall was beautiful. They turn a bright red in the fall. Then you have the orange and yellow leaves of the oaks, and the hills were spectacular. I have to call my mountains hills because some people just don't appreciate the Alleghenies (like Mr Giggles)

The first couple weeks of October are probably the most pleasant weather days of the year around here. Temperatures around 70, low humidity.

Back in Canada Autumn was my favourite season, not only because of the leaves turning colour, but because of the crispness of the air ending the summer's heat.  Where I am, I will never know the beauty of Autumn again, save in my memory.  A photo of that memory from when I was farther north than where I am now is this...

That's beautiful, Buzz. Looks like a sugar maple? I forgot about the purple some of the leaves will turn

There was a sugar maple on the front lawn of the home in which I grew up.

Pennsylvania produces a lot of maple syrup. They had a whole room devoted to it at the Farm Show in Harrisburg every year. And not just syrup but all the things you can produce from it like candy
