It’s autumn. How do I know. Well the calendar says so of course. This is my most favorite season. Finally our summer heat is waning and the nights are cooling. I can still hear my grandfather as he used to reminisce..."Soon you will begin to smell the scent of leaves burning. When you step out for dinner, you will have to bring that sweater just to keep the chill off." Never does the start of autumn go by that I don’t think of him and agree with his memories of his youth. I now find myself sharing these memories with my own children. As an avid plant and nature lover, fall marks the start of returning to the garden. It is so refreshing to spend time outdoors without the draining of summer heat. So I encourage you to take a break from the indoors and step outside and enjoy the weather for yourself.
