I found this at Charming the Birds from the Trees...
When does fall begin for you? Usually in late August or early September, when the air gets a certain crispness.
What is your favorite aspect of fall? That's hard, as I love lots of things about fall, but I guess just the fact that the weather is getting colder, and everything that goes along with that - blankets, tea, etc.
What is your favorite fall memory? Hmmm. I suppose any of many first days of school, with the new books and classes and school supplies and schedules, before things got boring again. :)
What do you like to drink in the fall? Tea! Cocoa! Pumpkin spice lattes! Chai! Hot cider! Cold cider! Coffee! Yeah, I like cold-weather drinks.

How about a favorite fall poem or quote?
It was October again when Anne was ready to go back to school--a glorious October, all red and gold, with mellow mornings when the valleys were filled with delicate mists as if the spirit of autumn had poured them in for the sun to drain--amethyst, pearl, silver, rose, and smoke-blue. The dews were so heavy that the fields glistened like cloth of silver and there were such heaps of rustling leaves in the hollows of many-stemmed woods to run crisply through. The Birch Path was a canopy of yellow and the ferns were sear and brown all along it. There was a tang in the very air that inspired the hearts of small maidens tripping, unlike snails, swiftly and willingly to school; and it WAS jolly to be back again at the little brown desk beside Diana, with Ruby Gillis nodding across the aisle and Carrie Sloane sending up notes and Julia Bell passing a "chew" of gum down from the back seat. Anne drew a long breath of happiness as she sharpened her pencil and arranged her picture cards in her desk. Life was certainly very interesting.
