August Topic . . .

As August is known as the "Dog Days of Summer",

our thoughts turn toward the refreshingly cooler days of fall. 

With that in mind, what is our favorite fall activity?  

And we heard . . .

April C.

"My favorite fall activity is picking out gourds, pumpkins and squash to decorate my flower beds and planters.  The best part of this yard decor is that it not only looks great, but makes awesome compost for my mums.  As winter approaches, I just smash the vegetables into the soil which makes an organic mulch.  I think it looks beautiful."  We do to April, thanks for sharing.

Diane G.

"What a lovely place to enjoy the outdoors.  It truly brightens my spirits.  Peaceful and beautiful."

Scott L.

"Terrific place to take a stroll and enjoy the beauty.  It was free to walk around (easy walk) and take in the beautiful flowers and trees."

Alisa D.

"A beautiful secret treasure in Kernersville!"

Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

We appreciate your input and look forward to hearing from you next month.
