Idioms for Fall/Autumn

Fall is a great time of year. I love the smells and colors that accompany fall. Where I live in the state of Wisconsin, the leaves change colors from grean to yellow, orange and red. I don’t think anyone can replicate the brilliance of autumn colors. Never has yellow seemed so dazzling, nor the reds so powerful. How does nature make colors soft and crisp at the same time? I have no answers.

What I also like about Fall or Autumn is the idioms that come to mind when thinking about the season. I would like to share a few with you here:

The apple of one’s eye – If someone is the apple of your eye, that means they are very dear to you. For example, “My grandson is the apple of my eye!” That is true! I love him to pieces!

As American as apple pie– this idiom means that something is stereotypically American. For example, “Eating hot dogs at a baseball game is as American as apple pie.”

To upset the applecart– this idiom means to ruin plans or the order of things. For example, “The students outbursts upset the applecart for the teachers lesson. Or, ” I don’t want to upset the applecart, but I cannot work tomorrow.”

Finally, The Big Apple– New York City ” I want to go to The Big Apple and see a show!
