"Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness/Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun/Conspiring with him how to load and bless/With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run."—To Autumn, John Keats. 

Autumn, the season of harvest, is the most colorful season of the year, with the golden paddy fields, the mellow fruits, and the leaves turning from fresh green to warm yellow or red, creating sceneries of a unique charm which is different from other seasons.
