To me autumn doesn't hold a candle to summer. However, nothing beats the beauty of autumn leaves. They are so mesmerizing they almost make me forget the dropping temperatures and rainy weather. The trees look like they are lit from within. It's so sad to see the leaves thining, yet I can't help but get excited for blossoms in the spring. I guess a girl can only dream of snow on the bare limbs during the months in between. The changing of seasons are a true gift.
