Carol lives is from Michigan but moved south to TN to be closer to her parents a few years ago. She says she misses Michigan's fall colors but not our winters. I honestly don't mind them. They possibly may be a few weeks too long; having seasons though is a great trade off in my opinion.
N.B. the blue trunks of the wild cherry trees, a medium sized green hosta in perfect fall yellow, the dahlias still alive after two light frosts, an unknown helianthus (probably). Clicking on photos enlarges them.
