For the last month or so, autumn's enthusiasts have been converging in Ludwigsburg, Germany for an annual festival. Snapshots from this year's event read like a children's storybook: a lake filled with pumpkin-boat paddlers, a feast of champagne and pumpkin strudel, and a sculpture garden of dinosaur pumpkins—all under the shadow of a seventeenth-century castle.

Now that Labor Day is behind us and the kids are heading back to school, Katherine Anderson of Marigold and Mint creates a number of late summer flower arrangements with three favorite flowers of the season: sunflowers, zinnias, and dahlias.
It’s full on Indian summer here in New York—minus the late afternoon darkness, you’d hardly know that it’s about to be October, what with these muggy days. I have to admit that I’m ready for the crisp air and cozy sweaters of fall, though I know I’ll be kicking myself come the dark days of winter. What I’m loving about this prolonged summer, though, is the produce that’s been continuing to pop up at the farmer’s market and in my CSA, including late-summer veggies like corn and tomatoes.
