Fall is here and is now in full swing. Pumpkin patches have opened up, mums are lined up outside stores and sunset is earlier. These are all sure signs of the departure of summer and the arrival of fall. Fall is a great time of year to really get outdoors and enjoy cooler temperatures and the surrounding outside beauty with the leaves changing colors and falling to the ground.
