Autumn is a second spring –when every leaf is a flower.”
“I love autumn, the one season of the year that God seemed to have put there just for the beauty of it.”
“As the aging leaves of summer give way to the drier foliage of fall, their earthy aroma is unmistakable. A mossy, heady sweetness hangs in the air notifying us all to bring out our sweaters and boots, tea and cocoa.
The birds appear more colorful against their fading backdrop; the remaining blue birds shine brighter in the sunshine, the cardinals burn red amidst the scantily dressed branches and even the brown streaked wrens seem polished as they flit along in their nonsensical pattern.
How I love this time of year, season of seasons when it just feels right to slow down a bit, take deeper breaths and observe the colorful changes falling into place.”
FESTIVAL OF LEAVES
So many folks absolutely love autumn. One blogger that comes to mind is Dawn Miller @TheDayAfter.
Many readers likely already know Dawn and if you want to get to know her a little more, check out her August 2022 post, Grooving on Photography, where she shares about her journey as a photographer. That journey has led Dawn to hosting the Festival of Leaves photo challenge. The sixth season starts September 22, 2022 and runs for about 10 to 12 weeks.

Dawn shared these helpful links:
The vibrancy of the color is what attracts me, oranges and reds especially . It is hard to describe how fall colors elate me. Probably if a PET scan were run, my endorphins would be visibly high on a country road in autumn.

Safe travels to Marsha and let’s close with two comics.
