I simply ADORE autumn! I'm one of those nuts who starts buying Halloween and Fall decorations as soon as they're out in the stores, usually by July. Each year I try to get at least one thing Snoopy related, be it a windsock or figurine. And BEST of all? The first day Pumpkin Spice Lattes are available at Starbucks--oh my YUM! Usually by the time they arrive in early September, I've hauled out all my fake leaves and apple candles and other goodies at home. 


Keep hopping!

I look forward to pumpkins in the fall. I know it's sounds silly, but I love to see bright, orange pumpkins, and go pumpkin picking.

I live in Pennsylvania and there comes a time when there's a change in the air right before the leaves start changing color. The air feels and smells crisper! I know it sounds crazy but that's when I know that Autumn has arrived!

Then i saw another post with Pumpkin-----i adore all things pumpkin-----pumpkin donut, muffin, roll, cake, pancake, cheesecake, bread, bagel----hate to see the season end when pumpkin whoopie pies go away again til next fall. kim

Autumn arrives when the temperature is consistently cooler and I need a jacket when I go outside.

it's a certain smell of leaves changing and colder nights


Sassy Chassy said...

My first thrill of excitement comes in mid September when the fields turn gold! Then when the trees start to change! There is nothing better than that!

Alicia said...

I live in Florida so the seasons are a bit more subtle down here - it is nice when the humidity goes down, although I can do without this cold weather, anything below 65 is too cold.

Alicia said...

Darn it, I am not good at this part:

living in a city ,we do not get to experience the colourful leaves as much, but, just love the cooler weather after the heat of summer.

Adila Mammadova said...

I like how all trees wear golden/red leaves. It's very beautiful.

I also love qutabs from pumpkin. Qutab is a national food cooked in my country, cooked dough stuffed with mincemeat or greens or pumpkin.

I love to feel and smell the change in the air as the season arrives. That is the first sense I have of the fall season. Then the cooler temperatures, the leaves turing and the arrival of the holiday season - my favorite time of the year.

I know Autumn is coming when the back to school sales start.i love notebooks, pens, highlighters and seeing anything new that has come out. I love reading and then writing down favorite thoughts from books. It means the cooler weather, comfort foods, hot drinks and colorec leaves are just around the corner.

The first sign of Autumn I look forward to is the leaves falling from the trees! It means it is truly getting cooler, finally!


Melinda Dozier said...

I live in Guatemala, the land of eternal spring. :) Autumn to me is the FEELING you get once the holidays begin. Here our first Autumn holiday is Day of the Dead. There is a breeze and families go kiteflying at the cemetary. It's quite interesting.

Hi Cari! The first sign of autumn that I look forward to, is the changing of the leaves. Having to wear heavier jackets and of course, getting ready for Halloween! Thank you for your part of the 12 days of Christmas! Fun, Fun! :D
