September 2020 - Fall in Lenawee9/7/2020
Are you ready for Winter? Even though September in Michigan is late summer, with warm days and cool nights, it is time to start to plan for fall yard clean up and preparing the home for the cold season.
September in Lenawee is marked by abundant produce at the Farmers Markets for home canning, in Adrian, Madison, or Tecumseh, and at local farms, such as Needle-Lane Farm, Ames Acres, Carpenter Farms, or Kapnick Orchards. Our local farms keep us well fed.
September is a great time to check out the outdoor events at the Historic Croswell Opera House: find their modified schedule here.
Some of the trees have begun changing into their autumnal dresses, making September a lovely time to watch the colors change at any of Lenawee County’s beautiful local parks. Late summer is the perfect time to enjoy the sights along the scenic, eight-mile Kiwanis Trail , which offers many views of the River Raisin, as well as pleasant stopping points for hikers, bikers, and runners.
September sunsets come a little earlier, making it a perfect time to gather around a fire on a cool evening with family and friends to swap stories and strengthen our relationships. Make it a September to remember.
"'Tis the last rose of summer,
Left blooming alone;
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone."
- Thomas Moore, The Last Rose of Summer, 1830
