I live in Arizona and Autumn begins for me when the Rufus hummingbirds pass through on their way south. And my pomegranates ripen. Yum!
i live in the north east and its those cool crisp days with ripe apples on the trees and tons of pumpkins to harvest. my favorite time of year.
I live in the Mid South and Autumn usually arrives here in late September or early October with cool, crisp mornings and evenings, loads of ripened apples, pears and persimmons. Autumn usually grips our area with the cool Friday evening prep football games, the opening of season for squirrel hunting and bow deer hunting and cool, crisp Saturday mornings in which we can do our autumnal yard house jobs in much cooler weather. Yard sales predominate the main roads and outskirts of local towns and festive events begin to take place county wide throughout the area. Our church celebrates its homecoming services in October, each year as do many other organizations in our area. I love autumn!
Fall arrives for me when the perfect combination of things arrive--a crisp, cool day, cool enough to build the first fire, trees kissed with the bright, festive colors that celebrate the season, and the aromas of simmering chili, crackling logs, and mulled cider that welcome you into our home--FALL is our family's favorite season!!
When I see the leaves starting to fall, wooly-worms crossing the road and birds start flocking. I know Fall is just around the corner.
I live in the Midwest and its when my all-summer hummers leave; the sky turns a more purple blue; and you walk out that first morning into a crisp, sort of fogginess down by the pond.
..without a doubt, here in northeastern NC, the smell of peanut dust when harvesting peanuts
The gathering of the birds to fly south for the winter marks the beginning of fall for Nebraska.
Here in Ky, when the nights start getting cool, apples and pumpkins show up at Roadside markets, I know fall is here.
