Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere officially started on September 22nd with the Autumnal Equinox. It is definitely my favorite time of the year. The temperature starts to drop, it rains more, and the trees turn in an array of different colors. I past some city streets staring in awe at the beautiful trees and bushes as they begin to change. When they bust into a variation of red, purple, gold, orange, and yellow, it takes my breath away. When I look out of my window, on this side of the US Bank, there's one very stubborn tree that has already changed to a golden yellow, but has not lost all of it's leaves. Still, I know it won't be long before I can see the flag that stands on top. I always use that flag as a guide to let me know the wind is coming and how fast. I'm got to make sure I'm wearing enough clothes when that flag is flapping crazily in one direction.
Yes, all of the trees and bushes will loose all of their leaves eventually, and all I'll see is the bleakness of a land without beautiful trees. I know we have to pay that price in order to see the Autumn leaves return next year.
