I love Fall

As much as I love Spring - the warm weather, the blooming plants and flowers, the fresh air after being cooped up all of January and Feburary - I love Fall more. After all, with Spring comes pollen and - all too soon - summer. But Fall is sweet relief after those hot, hazy dog days, and with it comes the smell of falling leaves, warm soups and holidays.
Plus, it's possibly my most active season for yard work.
Digging out the old, preparing the ground for the new; planting bulbs and taking cuttings; raking all those leaves! It's a great workout, and since Daniel LOVES to help...
Of course, leaves can be done with a blower; you still get a pile to jump into!
