The photo I picked is a fall one. Yesterday was a lovely fall day in northeast Ohio. Aside of from the often chilly weather, fall is my favorite time of the year. The days are cooler, leaves have changed color and everyone is preparing for wintertime. I think that these clear brisk days are absolutely magical. You can hear birds heading south and see animals preparing for winter. You can buy pumpkin creations, apple cider, and canned fruits and vegetable on the side of the road. School has started and there is this feeling of “new” in the air. Autumn is a beautiful and kind necessity to the world and that is why it is one of my favorite seasons.
There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky,
Which through the summer is not heard or seen,
As if it could not be, as if it had not been!
Percy Bysshe Shelley
