Fall Home & Gardening


Zion National Park

We’re just about one week away now from the Autumnal equinox, when we’ll officially move from summer to fall. And with the season that brings us fall foliage, and pumpkins, and football, the change of seasons also brings us the opportunity for transitions: whether it be with our garden, or garage, or even personal habits and routines.  

The 21st speaks to two writers for the Illinois Times’ Home and Garden Fall Guide about to talk about fall home and garden ideas.
