1. Appreciate the trees.
What better thing to do on a lovely warm day but view the fall leaves.
I grew up in a place where large hardwood trees are not plentiful. Now I live in a place where if you fail to weed your garden over the space of the year a small forest will spring up.
I am a bonafide tree lover.
The suburb where I live is known as tree city, and as there are several large trees right outside my window, I get to appreciate not only the fabulous display as the seasons change, but also the wondrous ecosystem of birds and mammals and insects that inhabit them.
These are the trees in my neighborhood putting on a show.
