Autumn, or fall, marks the transition from summer to winter and is experienced at different times of the year depending on geographical location and cultural norms. Wherever deciduous trees are found, autumn brings a colour change in leaves from green to orange, red, and gold. Autumn is often associated with thankful harvests and the start of the new school year and sports seasons. It fosters wistful acknowledgement that winter is coming, suggests coming decay, and that moment when someone or something is past its prime. Share your interpretation of AUTUMN with words or images.
