October 23, 1852

 in Thoreau’s Journal:

October has been the month of autumnal tints. The first of the month, the tints began to be more general, at which time the frosts began. There were scattered bright tints long before, but not till then did the forest begin to be painted.

By the end of the month, the leaves will either have fallen, or be seared and turned brown by the frosts, for the most part.
