It's the most colourful time of the year when the chlorophyll breaks down and the green recedes in the leaves. The colours that remain dazzle the eye. The air is cool and filled with the scent of fall. Leaves crunch underfoot, the sunflower that sought the sun now feeds the birds, the mums and rudbeckia compliment the season.
It's so pretty, isn't it? Yet it's a tender goodbye to summer.
