Fall colors--September and October in WI

[CENTER][COLOR="Sienna"][I][B][FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"]It starts out slow, with just a few of the sumac leaves beginning to turn...


...and then colors really begin to pop!

from day to day...

[CENTER][I][B][FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"][COLOR="Sienna"]It's not just the sumac.

The field thickets change...

...and then the early maples begin to blaze.

...the sumac begins to fade out.


The front yard becomes more muted in color, but still beautiful.

[CENTER][FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"][COLOR="Sienna"][I][B]The view from the deck is more subdued...


...and all the yards seem less flamboyant.

the late oaks are suddenly on fire!

and slowly but surely the colors fade...


The raspberry offers one last auburn.

The sumac blushes softly one last time.

Ho-hum! Just like that fall came and went. We really didn't have a nice fall this year IMO. Too rainy. :frustrated:

I like the one picture of the shed/house with the wheel and colours. Is that like an enclosed sitting room or a shed? :shrug: Looks pretty.

How [U]beautiful[/U] is that!!? We get NONE of that here, Hazel. Oh, a few pretty leaves on the pear tree, and the mulberry, but our natives just stay green. Thank Heaven you have only one season when your trees aren't looking an absolute picture. I know Winter has its beauty too but I prefer your leafy photo's.

I like winter trees, too--something very austere and pure about the starkness--but autumn is my favorite foliage season. :D

klm, that's the in-laws' "wood shed". It used to be a roof, two supports and a back wall on a cement foundation. It was where the past owners stored wood for their furnace. The in-laws took the concept of "wood shed" and ran with it! It's now a 3-season retreat...very nice!

Your photos are poetic, Hazel. Absolutely lovely, all of them, but the 5th one is my favorite :cloud9:. And the Hazelrun prison, wow, pretty fancy :D.

I should read before I write :rolleyes:.

Very pretty retreat :cloud9:.

:laughing: I'm sure we could make room in the Hazel Run Retreat once you're out on parole! :p It's not heated, though--at least in the prison you'd be warm at night. :D
