What's not to love about Fall?

I love Fall / Autumn, it is my favorite season by far. Living in the northeast I am spoilt by all the beauty this time of year affords, I just wish it could stay around a little bit longer, oh just a month or so!!!!
Here are the main attractions , in no particular order -
apple picking - which leads to eating of, making applesauce, making apple prints, etc....
pumpkins - decorating with, making pies, making jack-o-lanterns, etc.....
leaf-peeping - quite a pastime around here, involves very slow driving on weekends
beautiful fall leaves, ever-changing and just generally showing off!
fall clothes - wearing wool, turtlenecks, opaque tights, boots, great colors, etc.......
this is the time of year when I could break the bank at the clothes store!!!!!!
Hay rides
lots of new fall books to curl up in a blanket and consume
time for lots of knitting
new season of tv shows
weekend away in Maine - of course, this may not effect that many of you!

and, of course, Halloween - but that's another post all by itself!

great pics! Love the girl in knee-high socks. The one thing I don't like about autumn, is having to wear shoes again. Wish I could go barefoot all year!
