I like best of all autumn

"I like spring, but it is too young. I like summer, but it is too proud. So I like best of all autumn, because its tone is mellower, its colours are richer and it is tinged with a little sorrow. Its golden richness speaks not of the innocence of spring, nor the power of summer, but of the mellowness and kindly wisdom of approaching age. It knows the limitations of life and its content."

Fall is also my favorite. The smells of fall send me over the moon.

I like autumn because it's crunchy. Crunchy is good; ask Jif. :)

I just love every thing about fall. Definitely my favorite with summer a VERY close second. Or maybe tie. ;)

Autumn really is lovely, especially early autumn... when the colorful leaves start to dance in the wind.

Plus I was born in Autumn. What's not to love? ;-)

Hmmm... I don't know. Fall makes me sad.

What a lovely picture.

I love the "u" in colour. Makes me wish I were Canadian or a Brit. Words just look richer with the "u".
