In autumn, the weather gets cooler, and the leaves turn brown, orange, yellow, or red before falling from the trees. In the northern hemisphere (including England, shown here), this starts in September, but in the southern hemisphere it begins in March. The word “autumn” comes from Latin. The season is also called “fall”, because the leaves fall during this time. In other languages, its name is similar to “harvest”, because many plants are harvested in the fall.
