7 Ways to Celebrate Fall

Posted on by

I hope you are enjoying fall as much as we are at Warner’s Nursery. It’s such an amazing time of year, and if you are looking for ways to enjoy it to the fullest, I’ve got seven that I would highly recommend this month.

Plant those bulbs. Time is quickly running out for you to get those spring-blooming bulbs into the ground. Once the ground gets frozen and hard, it’s much more difficult to get them planted.

Go for a hike. The weather is cooling, the aspens are turning and it’s a perfect time to tackle your favorite path on the San Francisco Peaks, Oak Creek Canyon or anywhere the views are beautiful (which is lots of places in northern Arizona).

Enjoy a pumpkin spice drink. I know we make jokes about there being pumpkin spice everything this time a year, but honestly, the lattes are yummy. You can try our version, the Pumpkin Pie Latte, at our in-nursery coffee shoppe, Dottie’s.

Speaking of pumpkins…Warner’s pumpkin patch and hay maze are open now. Lots of fun, especially for the little ones. And it’s a great chance to pick up this year’s jack-o-lantern.

Arizona Snowbowl Gondola. Take your enjoyment of fall to new heights with a trip on one of Snowbowl’s 8-person enclosed gondolas. These state-of-the-art lifts at the ski resort take you up to 11,500 feet and an amazing view that stretches from the Grand Canyon to Sedona’s red rocks. What a way to check out the fall foliage!

Decorate Your Outdoor Space. Dressing up your house is no longer just for Christmas. Between Halloween decorations and fall blooms like mums and hardy pansies, autumn is a great time to get creative with your patio, front porch or yard.

Join Us for Halloween. We’ll be hosting a Halloween bash from 10 am to 3 pm on Oct. 31, so dress up the kids and get ready to trick or treat. Activities like balloon animals, face painting and a kiddie caboose will round out the event. All activities are free (although our vendors do appreciate tips!)

We are looking forward to seeing you this season.

Happy fall and happy gardening!
