The scene of changing leaves may be something that we all take for granted here in New York. We aren't quite in the season yet but it never hurts to start planning early.

You've probably noticed that it's getting a little cooler outside. We may even start to get this thing called frost. As the Fall season approaches we have a lot to look forward to. We'll soon be able to enjoy the beauty of the changing leaves in New York and right here in the Hudson Valley.
