Most people associate spring winds with kite flying. But those winds can be gusty, and the days can still have a winter chill. Autumn winds are more steady; the days can still be warm, with crickets chirping, cicadas buzzing, and leaves turning into beautiful colors. The perfect time to be outside with friends, family or just yourself!
