As summer comes to an end, we can't wait for our favorite season to start here at Country Living HQ—autumn! Here are our editors' top ways to embrace the fall season, from Halloween and tailgating, to hot toddies and leaf peeping.
This picture is a perfect taste of fall. When I was very little my Grandfather grew a garden every year and by the time fall rolled around his garden would be full of big pumpkins to carve for Halloween. My Grandmother would use some pumpkin for Thanksgiving pumpkin pie... yum. I always loved gathering the leaves into a pile then jumping in the pile. One year for Halloween we bought jack-o-lantern looking garbage bags and filled them with raked leaves and placed them on the back porch steps.
