My absolutely favorite time of the year is Autumn, especially in Upstate New York or in New England. It’s harvest time. The earth has provided us with an abundance of fruit and grain and vegetables to “squirrel away” for winter. It’s time to go apple picking and cook up the apples. Time to pick the pumpkins and bake pumpkin bread. In the morning, the grass is dewy and the air chilly and the mist lays in the fields and valleys and rises over the lakes, while the geese are heard and seen flying overhead. The trees change from green to golden yellow and orange and red. The leaves eventually fall to the ground and the smell of the kicked up leaves brings back early childhood memories. The air is cool and crisp and the sunrises and sunsets are gorgeous because there is little, if any, haze in the atmosphere.  The mornings and evenings are cool and the days are warm with the sun.  Soon after fall the time for hibernation will come, but during fall, every sense; sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch are working overtime to soak in all of the colors, smells, sounds, tastes and feelings of autumn.
