September first is the first day of meteorological Autumn. DH and I have had a friendly argument going for years about the beginning of each season and now I learn that all along I was going by the meteorological version and he was all for the astronomical one. I copied this little bit of info from the internet ( in case you're interested).
You may have noticed that meteorologists and climatologists define seasons differently from “regular” or astronomical spring, summer, fall, and winter. So, why do meteorological and astronomical seasons begin and end on different dates? In short, it’s because the astronomical seasons are based on the position of Earth in relation to the sun, whereas the meteorological seasons are based on the annual temperature cycle.
Summer runs from June 1 to August 31; fall (autumn) runs from September 1 to November 30; and. winter runs from December 1 to February 28 (February 29 in a leap year)
There now. I've managed to bore you with my trivia and I'll go on to bore you with tea cups. Here are a couple of the saucerless ones I collect, ones with Autumn tones.
This one has sort of Autumn colours. Both this tea cup and the next one are Queen Anne china.
I got out my Gather sign , the same one I used last year, and hung it on the front door. It was a gift from GD Kate. I'm always the first one on our street to put out anything seasonal. I have another sign for the back door which I just remembered. I'll go find it and hang it today.
Thanks for coming by,
