fall: your fb feed filled with other people’s photos of fall foliage.
fall: raking leaves when you’d rather be doing anything else.
autumn: jumping into the pile of raked leaves/the smell of an autumn bonfire. (fall can turn into autumn without notice.)
fall: why didn’t you bring a scarf/hat/gloves with you?
autumn: a brisk walk home in the late afternoon with long shadows, cold noses, rosy cheeks.
fall: cleaning the gutters/taking the screens out and putting in the storm windows in.
autumn: the first snow.
fall: the second snow.
