American Sign Language: "autumn"


The sign for "autumn" is based on the idea of "leaves falling from a tree."
Your non-dominant hand represents the tree (not an upright tree, but more of a tired old leaning tree).  Your right hand represents leaves "falling from the tree." Use a double motion.  Remember do the movement with your dominant hand.
