Celebrate Autumn in the Midwest
Bulbs, bikes and cones
Bicycle on the Apple Cider Century ride in Three Oaks, Michigan (applecidercentury.com), held each September.
Plant brown spring-blooming bulbs, such as tulips, daffodils (they're deer-resistant!), scillas, fritillarias, hyacinths and more.
Pick up pinecones as fire starters, or place them in a bowl for decoration.
