As we count down the remaining Frog Days of Summer, we can look forward to autumn colors. Even many of the snowbirds who go to Florida for the winter come back up to central New York for fall foliage viewing.

Usually, the higher elevations in the Adirondacks start the color change a few weeks earlier than central locations, but I have already seen a number of brown and golden leaves on my front lawn. In my opinion, fall is the best season of the year - not too hot, not too cold, no snow (well, maybe) and beautiful fall foliage colors. And one thing that I've noticed about leaf raking, if you don't rake those leave just the right way today, you get to rake the same leaves again tomorrow after they blow back from the pile you left on the road. Enjoy your leaf peeping!
