Yes, it is sad that the growing season is over but it's worth it - to me, at least.
One of the reasons I wanted to move to Maine was to have seasons again. I grew up in Missouri and while it is more Southern than Northern, it still had seasons and the trees changed along with those seasons. When we moved to Texas when I was 12, I had no idea it wouldn't be until I was 33 that I would enjoy a true Autumn once again. So, I've been reveling in it every year.

|Why do I have to do this every year?|
|My tin roof is on fiyuh!|
|Gold in them thar leaves|
|Late season color|
|It's all over - can't wait 'till next year|
The fun is just now beginning so be sure to stick around to see how this year turns out!
