comment Can inversion be used without auxiliary verb?
I accepted the other answer because it provides explanations on the usage of inversion and other grammar points. At the same time, the author of the original sentence in the question was astonished by your last example.

comment Can inversion be used without auxiliary verb?
@BillFranke Yes, the subject in German takes the first place or the third place when there's adverbial modifier at the first place. The original phrase is in Russian which does not impose a particular word order at all. And I also thought “to be honest” has to be separated from autumn, or placed in the beginning of the sentence.
