Two comments...

Fall might be a time of low rainfall where you live, but it is a time of
higher rainfall in many parts of North America.

Higher rainfall means that creeks and rivers are higher than usual, and
biological material from their banks is swept into the water.  Thus higher
rainfall causes higher nutrient concentrations.

something in the universe, or in the unconscious responds as if
