Even though we are sad to see summer go, it isn’t all bad. There are a few great advantages to the fall season due to its cooler weather and lack of bugs. There is no reason why your family can’t make this October one to remember—by spending it outdoors.
The first thing to consider, is your garden. Even though the weather is cool, it doesn’t mean that you have to wait until spring to plant. Mums and pansies are a great choice due to their ability to survive the cooler weather. If you are hoping to add a bit of color to your gardens, consider the Osteospermum ‘Soprano Purple,’ cuphea, Mexican bush sage, or pot marigold, each offer a great and stable plant that can last through the season.
