My wife thinks I'm nuts because I'm excited that the coal man is delivering next week! I can't wait!
I was also getting jazzed because I've worked all summer long to partially clear a wooded lot adjacent to my home. What I did is remove about 50% of the trees (though when I’m done, it'll be up to 70%). Of the remaining trees, I used a pruning staff/saw to remove all branches up to about 20 feet off the ground. It looks good! But as I stand on the back deck.....I can catch a single leaf letting go every now and then. It's not 'autumn' leaves per say......but they sure as hell weren’t letting go a month ago!
As much as I like spring......and burning the rock in winter.....my FAVORITE season is fall. Late fall to be exact. Leaves have already fallen.......dusk settles in at 4:30pm......it's overcast and there is a light cold mist falling. Oooooooooooh - I like it!
