10 Reasons Why I Love Autumn!

I love the autumn season!  Here are just a few reasons why!

chrysanthemum-991625_19201)  The other day I was walking into my local grocery store when I spied potted Chrysanthemums on sale.  There is something about Chrysanthemums that just make me want to smile.  I walked out with three.

     Last year my son was into Assassins Creed and I liked to poke fun of it just for the sheer joy of annoying him.  I would pull the hood over my head and say, “Look!  I’m an assassin!” I would almost whisper the assassin part.  Tyler would roll his eyes, “You are so weird!” Yep!

geese-505415_12808) During the fall season, thousands, if not millions, of geese pass through Lancaster County.  Both the Canadian geese and the Snow Geese use a  nearby wildlife area to rest and feed. You differentiate snow geese from Canadian geese by their plumage, their call and their flight pattern. While the Canadian geese fly in a v-shaped formation, taking turns leading, while the Snow Geese fly more in a group with no pattern.

pumpkins-683938_19209) Fair Season has already begun in my area with one in a neighboring community happening as I write this.  The one in our town is a major event for our community.  My children love entering exhibits and rejoice when they win a ribbon.

thermometer-70598_192010)  I love when temperatures are around 70-75°.  Extreme temps tend to aggravate some of my medical issues but 70-75° is not uncomfortably hot and not uncomfortably cold.  It’s a great temperature to enjoy the outdoors.

Autumn is a great season but each season has its own unique qualities.

What season do you love?  Why do you enjoy that season?
