Our Favorite Color is Autumn

From the moment the first impatient maples and sumacs start turning to the day that a carpet of leaves crunches underfoot and only a few brown clusters cling to the oaks, autumn is our favorite color. The weather is perfect for a brisk walk, the colors are brilliantly, endlessly changing, and you have a couple of months before winter sets in. Get out and enjoy!
