It’s undeniable that there is a change in the air. It’s coming, fall is right around the corner. While I’m never one to wish summer away, especially one as glorious as this one has been, a part of me is SO excited for sweaters and boots and apple cider. When the weather changes, there’s no need to submit to a drab, brown landscape. There are still plenty of beautiful options to carry your landscape through until the snow flies. Start planning now and you’ll thank yourself while you’re sitting out on the porch wrapped in a blanket and sipping that cider. Dreamy.
