Don’t you just love fall? The crisp air and the beautiful fall leaves…what could be better? Those reds and oranges are so beautiful. The other day I was out grocery shopping and the cashier told me that in order for the leaves to get to be so vibrant and bold the nights need to be cold and the days need to be warm. It sounds like this year has been the ideal year for those colors. Do you have any special places near you that you go to see the leaves?
