According to Shakespeare, autumn is the time when 'yellow leaves, or none, or few do hang upon those boughs which shake against the cold". In fact, Autumn (or fall) marks the transition between summer and winter. In the Northern Hemisphere, autumn goes from September to November, and can be recognized by lower temperatures, shorter days, and leaves turning colours and eventually falling to the ground. Autumn is represented by harvest fruits and vegetables typical of cold weather, such as apples and wheat.
