While warm summer is probably my favorite season, I have a soft spot for fall.  It's a colorful season full of reds, oranges, and other fiery colors. It means cuddling with blankets, wearing cute scarves, and sipping warm cups of tea.

But mostly I love fall because it reminds me of one of my favorite childhood fairy tales called, "The Leaf in the Shape of a Key" by Joan Aiken. It's about boy who rides his bike beneath trees in fall, catching all shapes and colors of leaves. The last leaf is in the shape of a key, and it opens a door in the base of a tree.

I rode my bike under a lot of trees as a kid hoping to recreate the magic, but unfortunately, it's a little less whimsical when you live in a neighborhood of pine trees.

Still, fall is a time of nostalgia for me and the photograph “Skin and Bones” by Thechildrensang really keyed into my memories.

I loved this 8d autumn has a mystic and beautiful air for me, it's a mix of melancholy, rebirth and serenity. From the selected deviations, I especially like Be Warm With Me and Autumn by elanordh

Autumn is my second-favorite season (my favorite is winter). Autumn means admiring the beauty of the Earth before she turns to a new, blank, white page.

Autumn means a lot to me. You can even say my life. The only season I wait with soo much anticipation. It reminds me of a dream I once had a long time ago. A dream that I cherish with all of my heart. My drawing "Waiting for you" is a fragment of that dream. I love drawing Autumn-y stuff because that's how much I love Autumn. And I also love every drawing,picture,craft that has to do with it. In the far future I'm planning to move to a place with hills and Autumn trees just like the ones in my dreams >.<
