Would spring or fall be good times to travel to the Heart of PEI?

The Heart of PEI area is exceptionally beautiful in fall when the rolling hills are green or golden, and the woodlots display rich fall foliage. Most seasonal operations stay open till Canadian Thanksgiving (mid-October), but the Town of Kensington is generally open year-round. Spring is also a lovely season to catch the vibrant displays of wildflowers, especially the pink and purple lupins that line many roadsides in late June!
