The beauty of such a distinct season is not lost on this Vancouverite who usually experiences a fall of shorter days much the same as the rest of the year, but a bit cooler at night, and often more rainy.  In the East, it is a distinctive turn of days, encouraging folks to wrap up the garden, get ready for a great harvest feast, and enjoy the fruits of their labours.
