Shades of Autumn

I was googling for some pictures of autumn and have linked some favorites below. When fall arrives each year, I think of watching Martha Stewart's shows in the 90's. She used to have the best fall decorations, crafts and recipes. I think she still does.

I copied part of a 60 Minutes commentary by Andy Rooney. He says:

I think if we had a vote, fall would probably be most people's favorite season. Some people who like fall call it autumn. I never use the word "autumn." It sounds pretentious. The down side to fall is it's the beginning of the end of everything. Flowers die, the leaves dry up and come off the trees, water in the lake gets too cold to swim in and vacation's are over. First thing you know someone's trying to sell you a Christmas tree.

Here are the pictures linked on that page. They are a few years old, but are gorgeous, adorable, unusual. Kids and pumpkins just go together, don't they?

Enjoy the autumn season :)
