The most wonderful time of the year

I've decided that this is my favorite time of the year.

The days are crisp and clear, the nights are cold and bracing, and the trees are nature's fireworks on display.

If you haven't been outside lately, the stately trees lining the streets of the city — at least the parts of the city old enough to have trees bigger than saplings — are bursting with a yellow-gold glow that seems to radiate the very warmth of the sun.

It adds a smile to my day (and a worrisome distraction to my drives).
