But mostly, it's the colors.
I went to high school (for the longest period -- I actually went to 4 high schools, graduating from Arizona. But I went to one in NY, one in California, and one in Vermont also) in Vermont and fell in love with the autumn changes in color. NY was great -- but there is something magical about Autumn in Vermont.
Here, in the Pacific Northwest, the autumn rains are upon us -- I suppose nature is getting even with us for the hot, sunny summer because the rains hit this week with a vengeance. Yesterday, my mother was driving home from work and said to me (yes she always uses a bluetooth): "The rain-drops must be one inch in diameter." Probably an exaggeration -- but the rain is heavy and chilling to the bone here when they set in.
And some years -- we have a little fall foliage (especially north or nearer the mountains), but not often.
When I came in from checking on my garden (yes still growing even this late in the season) during one of the 'breaks' in the downpours -- I found this treasury on my etsy shop notifications. OoooohEmmmmGeee, it looks like Autumn in Vermont.
