We’ve really had it made with the weather this week in Western New York. This past week, temperatures were near-perfect for this time of year - not warm enough to make us sweat, but not cold enough to turn the heat on in the house. But soon, we know that’s all going to change.

With temperatures dipping into the 40’s on Halloween and forecasts calling for a potential foot of snow next week (gulp),  we’d better get outside and enjoy the pristine fall weather this Saturday while we still can. 

Luckily for us, the temperature isn’t the only thing that will be beautiful - our outdoor surroundings will be as well.
