What did the oak tree say when autumn came around?

Leaf me alone.

Interesting Fact: The word autumn comes from the ancient Etruscan root autu- and has within it connotations of the passing of the year.[11] It was borrowed by the neighbouring Romans, and became the Latin word autumnus.[12] After the Roman era, the word continued to be used as the Old French word autompne (automne in modern French) or autumpne in Middle English,[13] and was later normalised to the original Latin. In the Medieval period, there are rare examples of its use as early as the 12th century, but by the 16th century, it was in common use. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autumn

What do you call a girl with a frog on her head?
Lily!

Interesting Fact:  The water lily is a big balanced plant that floats above the water. Usually the lily has white female flowers and also pink male flowers. The flowers are the size of soccer balls.  The plants come from seeds that come from water that rises 10 cm. a day. Soon it will produce 5-10 leaves a month. The large  lilies provide food for fish and wildlife.  ( http://interestingfacts.blog.com/2010/07/14/beautiful-water-lily/ )

I am not ready for the summer to end, but since this butterfly is not giving up on the season changing, I shall do the same.

Interesting Fact: One of the visible signs of fall is the changing color of the leaves. This happens because photosynthesis stops during this period so leaves do not stay green.  ( http://www.parkrideflyusa.com/blog/2012/09/21/12-fun-facts-about-fall/ )
