The cooler weather and all of the different colors from the leaves changing.

Same here...and your name quite relates to this but I used to love making the annual escape to the mountains when the leaves changed.....can't think of a thing more beautiful.

I agree Ed! They're changing here already plus I already ran the leaf blower this weekend. It was a dry summer so the leaves are coming down early. The acorns are dropping early too.

I love to see the leaves change color, fall to the ground and blow into my neighbors yard. I don't rake no stinkin' leaves!!!

The sound of the fallen leaves crunching under my feet

The crisp cool mornings and dry comfortable day time

The way the full moon shines brightly through the leaf barren trees as they dance across it's luminesce face, swaying in the autumn wind.

The smell of damp leaves on the ground, Warm Apples and Warm Pumpkin wafting with Cinnamon, Clove, and nutmeg . . .

*Sniffs* All I smell is the frozen dinner someone just cooked in the microwave at work. I think it's something Mexican.

Dear Ed Hunter,

The VERY best thing about autumn is that it's only nine more months until summer again...

I'm going to Australia, join up with Didge and Tris Fray Potter...

My birthday (September 28th) and I generally do enjoy the beginning of school. Weather will be slightly cooler, so that will be nice, but we don't get much in the way of leaves changing here in Florida.

Cooler weather and the sense of completeness from the natural grown of spring and summer.

(Unfortunately, it's not really "cool" in North Texas until around Thanksgiving.)

Whirlwinds.

I was cycling to work one morning and diverted down a street lined with giant ficus trees. The road was covered with leaves and a small whirlwind (we call 'em willy-willies in Australia) swept down the road with me, picking up the leaves and whirling them around me. It was like being attacked by a huge swarm of colourful butterflies.

I turned it into verse a few years later. Well, it was one verse of a longer poem about the wind:

The breeze,
the welcome breeze,
breathes gently in the autumn day
in spirals through the colours gay
when leaves to butterflies transform
caressing in a tinted swarm
delightfully.

Thank you Dozy, so lovely...

Besides to hopefully turning the a/c off at night and opening windows, there are fewer tourists and the snow birds haven't arrived in full force yet.
