Words of the Day: Qiu Tian (Autumn)

Posted: Thursday, October 28, 2010 By Ni Hao Books

The Words of the Day for today is 秋天, qiū tiān (autumn). The four seasons in San Diego are all quite similar. The temperatures vary, but the scenery is quite green, or a more brownish green all year round. Some trees do lose their leaves (树叶,shù yè) in autumn, but there are just not much changes of color. This is probably the only time I miss the two years I spent in Michigan. Those beautiful leaves, in colors of various shades of yellow, orange, and red are just so breathtaking. My mother-in-law just came back from a trip to Canada, and brought back maple leaves for my son. He was so happy to see real maple leaves. I guess it's time to take him to visit the mid-west, before the long winter comes.
