What a great topic! Let's see...

1) Watching my children gleefully dance with the falling leaves like a fantastic ballet.

2) Lying on the ground, as I did as a young girl, watching the tree canopies swirl and release a flurry of golden leaves.

3) The return of the cool, northern wind breathing into the branches of the Oaks.

4) Bustling around the homestead together, gathering and preparing, taking in all of autumn's splendor.

5)Warm nights snuggled under the covers with my husband and children, drinking gingerbread tea and reading stories, while the wind howls outside the window.
