Season: Paeans to autumn..........

It happens to be my most favorite season of many of you...why not? It ushers in crisp weather, rainbow-colored foliage, abundance of nuts, carpet of leaves, pumpkin patch, corn maze, hayride, apple picking, grapes-laden vineyards, the festival of ghouls and goblins, mum extravaganza, mushroom popping, among many other attractions..........

In honor of fall, here are some quotes from famous people...accompanied with pictures from my lens...
