It's getting cool in New England. Farmers are selling their pumpkins. The school buses start rolling tomorrow.
As much as I'll miss the summer, I love the fall: the breezes, the foliage, the decorating. I plan to put out autumn wreaths, gourds and a big bowl of apples this week.
What do you do around your home to mark the change in seasons? If you've got a photo or a blog post you'd like to share, please email me or leave a comment here with a link for a roundup later this week.
I'm leaving you with a final look at summer: Above is a house on Loon Island in Newfound Lake in New Hampshire, where we vacationed this summer (at the lake, not that house. But, wouldn't that have been fun?).
And a tip for next year: Here's a good way (above) to stay warm and dry while touring Newfound Lake when the rain unexpectedly appears.
