This year we have actually had a fall. The colours have been spectacular and the leaves have stayed on the trees beyond the end of September! Having 4 distinct seasons is something I do miss about England. There is a natural rhythm to the year which can be plotted with the changing weather and the changing landscape. Here in Alberta, if you blink you usually miss fall and spring! Fall (or autumn as we call it in the UK) is simply lovely. Yes, there is a wistful sadness at leaving behind the glorious long days of summer but look at this beauty. What not to like?
