The season of falling leaves

'Leaf-fall', an alternative name for the Quenya season more commonly called Quellë. Quellë or Lasse-lanta was a period corresponding to a period between autumn and winter, fifty-four days between modern 8 October and 30 November known as the 'fading' time. The equivalent season was known in the Sindarin tongue as Firith or Narbeleth.
