Autumn in Wisconsin - Fall Colors

 Maple tree outside our back door

Today I thought I'd just post a few photos from around the yard, which I took on Sunday. I think our color here in NW Wisconsin was at its peak.  The maples, oaks, birch, poplar, and evergreens make a gorgeous landscape this time of year!

 

Purple Aster

I couldn't believe it when these showed up this year. Most asters I've planted in the past were not hardy to zone 3 where we live.  I'm going to cover these with leaves and hope they can survive the winter.

 The pond garden, early morning.
After a hard frost, with leaves cluttering up the brick
The rudbeckia are mostly dead, but the impatiens were covered at night to gain a few more days of enjoyment.



Early morning view from our deck 
September 20

I never tire of this view from our deck, especially when the fog is still hovering in the low spots. It always reminds me of flannelgraph lessons at Good News Club when I was a kid. Doesn't it look like any minute Miss Gustafson could step in front of the scene and place a few people on the road or in the field?

What could be more beautiful than the colors of fall with the accompanying sunny, cool and crisp days!

What an amazing Creator you are, Lord! Thank you for sharing all this beauty with us.

Gorgeous photos! We get a lot of bright yellow and gold in our back woods and they are beautiful. Just now turning so I'm hoping to take some pics this weekend.

Do you know the David Crowder song -Everything Glorious? The trees turning always bring that song to mind.

Your photos are just spectacular. Our leaves are just beginning to really change. I'm hoping the rain will stop today so I can get out with my camera.

Hugs,
Laura

Oh, how pretty! That deck view is glorious. Our leaves are just starting to turn. So far our lowest overnight low has been in the 50s so we haven't had anything close to a freeze yet. But I see our high on Saturday is supposed to be 55 so we are headed that way.

Robin said...

The veiw from your deck is amazing!
Autumn has never really been my favorite time of year. After all the heat this summer, I am enjoying it so much more this year! (Fall in this corner of the state can be awful rainy, but not this year!)

Ruth Kelly said...

Yep, it looks like autumn. I was amazed at all the trees you view from your home.

Ginger Zuck said...

So true, Judy, your photos of God's handy work are beautiful! Thanks for sharing them. We are just beginning to get a little color here in Kentucky.

Oh you are killing me with that first shot. I am so jealous. It is still very much summer here.

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

We will probably get our first frost tonight I am not looking forward to it.
