The country is where we see the beauty of Fall the most. This scene, painted by Nancy Wernersbach, shows all the seasonal colors that I love the most: purple, yellow, gold, red and brown. The artist has included other Fall symbols that I look forward to seeing each year such as pumpkins, open windows, changing leaves on trees, sunflower plants, apples and corn mazes. One way that you can celebrate the season is by assembling this puzzle entitled Country Autumn, found in our Dogs/Cats/Birds/Rabbits themed jigsaw puzzles at A+ Puzzles, Etc.
One of Chicago’s distinctive features is its ‘L’ Train, which is the nickname for its Rapid Transit System. ‘L’ stands for Elevated, although parts of this transit system are subway tunnels, at grade level, or open cut. According to Wikipedia, it is one of the “Seven Wonders of Chicago.” It began service in 1892 and today carries 767,730 riders a day. Besides being a fast, easy way to get to work, riding the ‘L’ is also a wonderful way for a visitor to tour the City. Because passengers are elevated above the city streets, it gives them an interesting view of the scenery, especially of Lake Michigan. This picture from our Chicago Nights Jigsaw Puzzle is a fine example of the view that passengers have as they travel along near Lake Shore Drive with skyscrapers on one side and the Lake on the other side.

This lovely rural setting focuses on two pheasants in the late Autumn. Pheasants are native Asian birds that were introduced to the U.S. from Asia in the 1880s and are now a popular game bird. There are several species of pheasants. The ones featured in this Rustic Outlook Jigsaw Puzzle are Ring-necked Pheasants. According to All About Birds, “They forage on the ground in fields, where they eat waste grain, other seeds, and insects when available. Ring-necked Pheasants usually walk or run and only occasionally resort to flying, usually when disturbed at close range by humans or other predators… Look for them along rural roadsides, in overgrown or recently harvested fields, and in brushy areas and hedgerows.” Hunting season for pheasants takes place in Autumn so these birds better watch out!

Along with other symbols of Fall, Squirrels running everywhere are a picture of Fall. Fall and Spring are the times in which we see a lot more squirrels than usual due to females giving birth. And since squirrels do not hibernate, they are especially busy looking for food, such as acorns, to put into one of many caches located in trees and elsewhere during the Fall to help them survive the winter. You can help to celebrate Fall by putting together this “Autumn Squirrels” Jigsaw Puzzle. It is from our shaped jigsaw puzzle collection and our nature/landscape/ocean jigsaw puzzle collection, both of which can be found at A+ Puzzles, Etc.
The title of this Christian themed jigsaw puzzle comes from a passage in the Bible.

[2 Chronicles 7:14]” If you would like more information on the symbolism of the picture, the artist, Jack Dawson, has a website with interesting background information.

Harvest Moon and Hunter’s Moon are the names given to fall months in the Northern Hemisphere. The actual day of a “harvest moon” or “hunter’s moon” occurs on the day in which the full moon occurs. These are the two days in fall in which farmers and hunters can have extra light at night to bring in either their harvest or their spoils from hunting. A hunter’s moon occurs in October.
In this picture, which is the last of a series of 4 paintings by Michael Sieve, the hunters are wolves. They have gathered, hunted, killed their prey by the light of the Hunter’s Moon and now with day break they can move on to their next activity after enjoying their spoils.
