I feel like my summer is almost over...for me, summer is over when school starts (so September 8th), even though it's still hot ;) When does autumn begin for you?

Beginning of October. Sometimes if we're lucky, we can still get hot days in September.

When every coffee shop on earth starts selling pumpkin flavored things ;)

When the trees start changing color fall is not far off. This begins around the middle of August. I start mourning the passing of summer and eventually start welcoming fall. By about mid to late September I'm ready for it:)

I'm with Judy... We usually get some nice days in October down here too but the temp drops and the colours of autumn set in and you get the crisp mornings.

I love autumn!

It's my favorite season, Purple! :) I love scarves and bon fires and pumpkin flavored everything and apple cider. Sigh...I can't wait for fall this year.

You have bonfires in autumn in the USA? Cool :)

Oh...and also Virginia, why do you feel summer is almost over, when you have the whole of August and the first week of September left before you're back at school??

Stop wishing your life away my dear! :P

Honestly? Because that means I'll be out of the first trimester and the chances of miscarrying will drop drastically :)

Usually I go by when the leaves start turning and/or the temperature drops. Our summer is quite short here in the Northeast. It really starts cooling off in mid-September...then in October, it's not unusual to get our first snow, even if it is just a dusting. I suppose technically the beginning of fall is in September, but then the end of it is in December, which is wayyyyyyy far off considering that we have well below freezing temperatures and snow on the ground before then :D Fall here goes very quickly from "nice" to "freezing" so I don't really enjoy fall. There is about one week of comfortable and nice weather, but that is it.

Also, school starts late August when the temperatures are still QUITE summery so I can't say that's autumn. I do wish the kids had more time off from school.

I'm so not ready for fall, but I definitely feel like summer is almost over. I consider fall/autumn to be mid sept to thanksgiving-ish. We get a lot of snow at Thanksgiving time, unfortunately, so I think of that more as winter. (Last year we got a foot of snow the day before, we watched from the top floor of the hospital the day after DD2 was born)

Mid Sept usually. It's when the evenings have a slight crisp to them. Our autumn days are warm still - all the way thru October usually but the night temps drop and the leaves begin to change and I! LOVE! IT!

Ah ok. Well that is fair enough then! :)

I usually say end of August because the trees start changing, but it's been on my mind for the past two weeks because the leaves are changing on a few of the weaker trees. The blueberries aren't even in full swing yet and we're having hot temps, but I can feel it coming.

---I can hardly wait for you to be in the "safe" zone Virginia! I hope you have the coziest, most special autumn of you life!

I love that you use Autumn, because it is such a lovely word. Fall, not so much.

I see it as starting in early August, so September 22 is mid autumn. late October / early November is the end because that is usually when we start to see the snow begin, and then Solstice / Christmas is mid winter. Spring is early February until late April, early May.

Apple / caramely autumnal treats are not indulged in until after Labour Day, and pumpkin ones preferably not until after mid autumn - but they can both go until thanksgiving, along with gingerbread which is acceptable from November until January.
