Get in The Mood for Fall
Nobody’s immune to the charms of fall. There are the obvious reasons—the weather, the pumpkin spice, the comfy knit sweaters. Not to mention, fall presents so many opportunities to go wild with zip ties, duct tape and orange-colored lights. But there’s also something else—a warm, fuzzy feeling we can’t quite put our fingers on. If you’re the sort of person who loves chasing those “fall feels” and enjoys sightings of grinning pumpkins, ghouls and goblins, this might just be the perfect fall itinerary for you.
Experience Roger’s Gardens Holiday Boutiques
You can definitely swing by Roger’s Gardens to pick up a decorative pot for your new fiddle leaf, but during the upcoming months, you might want to carve more time out of your day to spend here. Because every year, the spaces at Roger’s Gardens transform into a Halloween fantasyland (October) and winter wonderland (November). Given all the effort that goes into planning and decorating every square inch of the boutique, it’s safe to say there’s a lot to explore and even more take home.
