There are certain times of the year that may leave us dreaming of different climates. However, most Midwesterners look forward to the different seasons. Imagine life without fall foliage, a snow-draped landscape, spring wildflowers, and summer produce. Life is much more interesting with the changing of the seasons, even when some seem to go by too quickly and others seem to last a bit too long.
A crisp October day is a wonderful time to take a hike in the woods, visit a pumpkin patch or pick apples at a local orchard. Enjoy the splendors of fall. It will be another year before they return.
