Fall Colors in Wisconsin

 Eighteenth Street
October 2, 2012

I took these photos on Tuesday, October 2. They're all from our neighborhood. The color was absolutely stunning. No wonder we love this time of year!  I was so glad I got out there with my camera because... today, just four days later when Kevin and I went for a walk, it felt more like November. Dark clouds were scudding across the sky, it was windy and cold, and a lot of the fall color has already been lost.

I hope you'll enjoy this blog postcard of the leaves at their peak of color - Autumn in Wisconsin!

Such pretty sights from around your home. Oh, how I love fall. Praying that Lionel will drink/eat very soon.

Can I come camp on your deck? I can cook and I do landscaping.

GORGEOUS! I'm so jealous! If I put up pictures of our fall so far, everyone would think it was still summer.

Amy Burzese said...

Beautiful! I wish I could be there to see the color. I am so envious of the view from your deck. I hope Lionel is doing well.

April said...

Beautiful! Thank you for sharing. Can't wait till the colors are fully underway here. Hope Lionel gets better!!

The view from your deck - is that all yours? That is breathtaking. So beautiful. I really enjoyed each photo.

Debra Hawkins said...

Wow, these are all so beautiful. I love fall, I am so glad we live in a place that has fall, I missed it when we didn't.

A narrow window of a few days to capture the mood ... that I always seem to miss.
The quality on this set is superb. Your camera is working a treat here. On a side note, it's nice to see the contrast against the blue sky in one of them.

Hi Judy, Oh how I love the colors of the northeast. It is amazing what two days can do when the colors have peaked. Beautiful colors, thanks for sharing.

OMG!! The trees are just amazing!! We probably aren't going to have much color this year because of the intense temps this summer and the lack of rain. Thanks for sharing - I'll enjoy yours.

I am so jealous. So gorgeous. I would love to see it in person.

Oh, I just love Wisconsin at this time of year and used to come over to visit my friends just to see the colours(not what I told them). I've come over from Sunny Simple Sunday and am so glad that I have. Just lovely!! Joan

Creative Design at His very best!
I can't help but think that God stitched us a colorful patchwork quilt to wrap us in His love throughout the coming Fall and Winter months.
Thank you for your beautiful post!
I'm happy to have found your blog thanks to Elaine at Sunny Simple Sundays.

It's turning gorgeous here too. October is my favorite month in this part of the country.
