Autumn

There is a feeling I get that announces to me that autumn has arrived. I'm not sure what triggers that feeling - the leaves hadn't started changing color yet and the temperature was hovering in the 90s so it wasn't anything obvious. I talked with a few friends and they had differing opinions on the topic. Not one of us agreed as to when autumn starts. It got me wondering as to when does Autumn start for you?

Think for me it has to be when the nights are getting shorter so it gets darker quicker. over here its cool anyway but you can fell a chill in the air at night and when you rise in the morning

The weather for sure. It's been hot but today it's 64ºF and it just feels like autumn outside.

When September 1st comes around, I consider it Autumn/Fall. Today it really feels like it since it is 71°F and breezy, and a simply beautiful day.

1st of September for me as the kids have started school and, in N Ireland at least, the leaves are changing colour. In fact I've a carpet of leaves on my lawn! It's also cooler here in the mornings and evenings, you can see your breath now

I voted for when football begins, because that's a sure sign for me here in the desert. It takes so much longer for the cool down out here. Pre-season starts, and I'm ready for fall...Go Pack, Go!
But really, September 1st comes and I start decorating!! That's what I did all weekend, inside & out. Love this time of year!!

I know it's September 23rd, but for me it's truly Fall when the fireplaces are lit and the leaves change colour and I'm out and about snapping photos and local apple season begins. From mid-Sept. to the end of November I don't snack on much other than a variety of apples. Mmmmm.
