Changing Seasons

This summer just flew by, and I have been amazed at the farmers harvesting corn and tobacco for several weeks now. My mind keeps saying, "it is too early", but the calendar and the sun tell the truth.
It is Autumn, officially on the 23rd.

Soon it will be dark by 5:00 pm and the evenings will be spent inside, or maybe on occassion a campfire and S'mores.
I bought some mums yesterday, and need to get my pumpkins and cornstalk soon. I love the way these items make our home feel warm and welcoming. I have some fun ideas to do with the pumpkins this year, which of course I will post about, but first I must tidy my garden by cutting back all the summer plants. I enjoy the look of the garden in the different seasons.

What kinds of things do you do to welcome the changing seasons?
