“Hello, late summer morning.” A young girl takes a walk through her neighbourhood taking in the sights of summer changing into autumn. She travels from her home through a forest, following a stream into the local town. She greets all these changing symbols with “Hello.” They respond explaining what they are doing to prepare for autumn. The blue jays head to sunnier climes, the leaves change colour and the wind blows. As she walks home, the changes in the seasons become more clear as she says hello to autumn.
