I know I am bemoaning the end of summer, however, I adore autumn. I love the smells, the colors and the way the air feels.
I love the bounty as in the Colorado peaches that drip with juice by just looking at them.
I love NY State apples (I may be getting my favorite kind delivered to me – Cortland apples!)
They taste crunchy, juicy, & sweet. They’re white as cloud on the inside and like a rosy flower on the outside.
I love the crunch under my feet when I hike and the smell of the warm pine needles.
I love the cooler nights and the even cooler mornings.
I don’t like saying goodbye to summer because it’s one more summer gone… but I really do love autumn.
I love the gold aspen silhouetted against the evergreens.
I love listening to the elk bugling and strutting their stuff.
I love autumn, don’t you?

I love the poem. BTW, when speaking from New York, are there big apples? 🙂
Love the video. Love that you love autumn. All around great post.
Life is good when you can go out and enjoy nature. Love the water, so clear. Can almost smell it. It even *sounds* fresh. Enjoy, Marge!
life is good indeed. walk in beauty this day.
We are having a double blessing here. A double autumn. The weather kicked in an early one during August – then it stopped. Now the cooler weather has brought the real one. Flaming leaves in August was a shock, Now it’s more gentle, Yes, I love autumn, and I love this post too.
Great cideo! I love the Rocky Mountains and hope to see them again soon. I also love pumpkin and the pumpkin flavored coffee at Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks. Yum!
Now that Autumn is settling in, I am beginning to enjoy all the wonderful things about this time of the year… I can take a long walk and not sweat buckets. The leaves are turning, the earth is quieting down… and to quote you, life is good! 🙂
I too love fall…the colors, Virginia apples, pumpkins, and the farm festivals. Loved seeing [and hearing] the Colorado waterfall! My Best, joni
Thanks for writing. Autumn is a splendid affair in Colorado and in most places. It’s takes getting outside and getting into a state of appreciation.
Yes, there are so many wonderful things that unfold at this time of year and as the air cools and the smells erupt, there is so much to appreciate. I find myself saying “Thank You” more and more during this season.
Yes, it’s that time again for pumpkin donuts and zucchini bread and apple crisp and mountain hikes! Come and join me!
Autumn is so fleeting and the ability to get out and enjoy the colors in August (!) or September and esp in October is a sweet thing!
Thanks so much for your comments – I will walk in beauty today!
I made a bunch of these clips and loved the fact I included the apple in my video so wanted to post for all to see! Thanks for checking in!
Upstate NY is famous for it’s apples. Perhaps it’s all the rain and moisture they get that makes them so wonderful! NY apples are big and plentiful!

As much as I LOVE summer, I will admit, I like Autumn. The beautiful colors of our NY fall is something to be appreciated. I am thankful for the gift of sight, to see what God has given us. The beauty of 4 seasons. I will try to embrace each of these as they come and enjoy them to the fullest.
