My favourite season is autumn/fall not only because we are already in it now but because after a long hot summer it is all so refreshing to see the first rains, smell the damp earth and see the raindrops falling off the leaves.
It is still not too cold, but it is cool enough to be able to wear your winter clothes which if you are not a perfect woman, make you look much better as various layers hide all those nasty bits!
All the vegetation starts to change its green colour into reds, oranges, rusts and burgandies (much more colourful than plain green).
You can at last breathe cool fresh air which makes your lungs feel new and revived after a long summer of breathing in hot damp air that doesn't even seem like fresh air any more but more like the air of a hair dryer being shoved down you.
The days get shorter and we can once again settle down in front of a roaring chimney with a good film and feel that this is a hundred times better than going out and spending valuable money, so in autumn we can get back to saving which is always good for all us that are living through the economic crisis.
