Changing colors, dropping temperatures, pumpkin spice lattes: do these mainstays of Fall fill your heart with warmth — or with dread?
In Europe we say ‘autumn’ but I think that ‘fall’ is a much more evocative word. It’s a much older term.
I’ve heard it said that a good gardener plans as much for the autumn as for the summer. Given the explosion of colours, who can regret a season such as this? The gardens outside my window are still green, but soon I will have a beautiful carpet to walk on.
Please check out Autumn In Japan for some more beautiful photos. The credit must go to nature alone.

Would this DP were less northern hemisphere-oriented …

Agreed! Still, Australia has about 6 seasons, we should find out what the locals used to call them..

We should, Peter.
I have a feeling you will.

He wasnt even all that short… propaganda, like Little Johnny H, who is taller than Bob Hawke (morally a pigmy tho’ our John) I like the French idea for months… on the island Aug/Sept would be Ventose, that bloody westerly!

You remind me that I was thus informed by Stephen Fry on “QI”. 🙂
I agree 100% with your opinion of Howard: I blame him for turning us into the greedy grasping bastards we have become – always whingeing “it’s not MY fault !” PFUH !
