It's my favorite time of year. Greens turn to beauti-fall hues of red, orange and yellow. Cool breezes waft in, and the smells of pumpkin, firewood, cinnamon, hot cocoa and spiced apple surround you. The holidays begin, and bring with them, loved ones from near and far. These are some snapshots of autumn that warm my heart, as the temperatures begin to drop.

*I was very reluctant to do a blog about falling leaves and the change of seasons from California, because all I ever hear from transplants to the Golden State is that "California doesn't have seasons." Then I happened upon this website entitled "California Fall Color - Dude, autumn happens here, too." Between that and, well....simple observation, I realized that my reservations were ridiculous. While we might not have a New England kind of autumn, there is much to behold during the fall season in California.
