The official first day of Spring for countries in the Southern Hemisphere (corresponding to the first official day of Fall or Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere) is around September 20/21, depending on when the sun crosses the equator.

However, in South Africa where I live, and also in Australia and New Zealand, September 1st is recognized as the first day of Spring. The plum and peach trees in our garden definitely agree, as evidenced by the beautiful blossoms that spectacularly erupt at this time of year.
