Autumn year round — 7 Comments

  1. Ok Jeff, here we go:
    The sight of red maples on a crisp sunny day – best part of Autumn
    Waiting at the door in our neighborhood for all the little ghosts and goblins for Trick or Treat – Halloween
    First leaves falling, morning air has a new somewhat smokey fragrance, caramel apples at the store – Autumn is starting
    Witch – my ultimate costume
    The Exorcist – best scary movie (still gives me the heebie jeebies after all these years!)
    Coffee – black, thanks
    Neighbors in the 60s inviting us in and MAKING us do a trick for the treat (I know, creepy…they were nice though) – we told a quick knock – knock joke, got our candy and scooted out the door!
    Would love to spend Halloween in Jackson NH, all those pumpkin people you know
    Roasted corn with maple pepper – fav food
    Corn Maze? No too claustrophobic!
    Eddie Bauer fleece vest, warm and cool as needed – accessory
    Skip the turkey, pass the stuffing/dressing – Thanksgiving food
    Autumn – a sunny day when beautiful leaves of red and gold drift down from the trees leaving a crunchy carpet on a trail to a brook or waterfall. Ahhh!!!

  2. Jeff,

    I won’t answer all the above questions, but the most important part of autumn to me is the brilliant fall foliage. I live in North Carolina, in the foothills near the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is/can be brilliant color in our mountains, depending on the conditions of the particular year. I also love gingerbread, typically a colder weather item.
