There’s something magical about Fall, when the vibrant greens of the previous two seasons give way to the gold, red and orange that inspire us to make chili, watch football and venture forth on a leaf-viewing excursion.
With weather remaining unseasonably warm into early October in Georgia, many of the hardwoods have maintained their green leaves through the first part of the month, allowing plenty of time to enjoy a drive through the mountains for weeks to come.
To be sure that a day trip or a weekend getaway will yield photo-worthy treescapes, the Georgia State Parks website features a Leaf Watch page which lists tree-color conditions in more than a dozen parks in the North Georgia Mountains, as well as Sweetwater Creek Park near Atlanta, Panola Mountain Park near Stockbridge, and F.D. Roosevelt State Park near Columbus.

Of course, it’s easier to admire the changing landscape when raking is not part of the equation, which is why more Boomers are leaving the large yard behind and opting for a home that includes all of the must-haves without any of the drawbacks.
Just as the colors of the season blend together seamlessly, each providing its own unique appearance to the palette, the architects and builders of Boomer-inspired ranch homes blend form and function to produce a luxury home without typical hassles, creating a livable work of art.
