Officially fall

Tuesday brings the first day of October. While technically September brings the beginning of fall. School has started, football season has kicked off and apples are in full celebration. But for me, October truly brings fall. The crisp weather truly greets us every morning. The foliage begins showing sign of is rigorous summer season. Farmers markets begin their nod towards the gourd family and we celebrate all things pumpkin. This truly is my favorite time of year. 

Mums and pumpkins have shown up on my little "porch" this weekend. Which for me starts the beginning for fall. 

What about you. What's your first inclination that it's fall? Is it the pumpkin spice latte showing up on the menu at Starbucks? Apple cider candles? Saturdays at the corn maze and pumpkin patch? A trip to the local county fair? Cool, crisp mornings? A drive down highway 412 to see the changing colors on the banks if the Buffalo River?

When does fall officially begin in your world?
