While Linus works toward having the most sincere pumpkin patch, we aim for sincere decorations. We don't expect a visit from the Great Pumpkin, but simply seek the unadulterated delight of visiting children … and the wayward parents they happen to drag along.
Now is the time to get out and enjoy the last of the fall colors in southern Connecticut. While outside wandering … whether aimlessly or not … look high to grab a mental snapshot of New England's breathtaking fall colors. But also look down to take note of color changes lower to the ground. Often, perennial plantings put on their own show each fall. Low-growing sedum, once bright green, now displays it's autumn hues.
