Lists from The Swamp: 10 reasons I love autumn

  1. Even before autumn starts I love seeing the leaves on the trees fade and grow tired. It signals to me that the hell that is summer is almost over.
  2. I can enjoy the sunny days without being overheated.
  3. The local food scene in Maple Ridge is to die for! Lots of fresh vegetables, fruit and meat.
  4. The crunch of leaves under my feet.
  5. Watching the trees turn brilliant colours. Where I live, we have lots of blueberry farms and the bushes turn brilliant shades of purple and blue.
  6. The cold bite of the air in the morning.
  7. Temperatures going down to single digits so we can ditch the air conditioner for the year.
  8. After a long summer break, new movies and music are released.
  9. The first smell of someone burning wood in their fireplace.
  10. THANKSGIVING!!! My favourite of the turkey holidays.

What is your favourite season and why? I love autumn and spring the most. Winter comes in third; I loathe summer.
