I'm the exact same way, Brian! Any sign of Fall shifts my cravings.
I'm in Michigan so we get traditional four seasons. But to live in the New England area during Fall must be like a dream! I hope to see it someday.
Yes, they are blooming here now, too, a little before my Jerusalem Artichoke.

Everything has its trade offs. Topical? Yes, but hurricanes too. I like having distinct seasons (having grown up in Maine.) Our trade off is living on an earthquake fault line!

Oops! I could surely have mentioned the swallows' departure, along with the departure of the hummingbirds! I will watch to see here, if those herald the end of summer or an end to fall.

I agree with you, especially about the short daylight. I can't drive very well after dark, so getting home from work in winter is a nightmare for me. Our seasons have shifted, so now it doesn't really get shirt-sleeve time until the middle of June.
