The Post Where I Show You Too Many Photos of Leaves

I love fall.  It's my favorite season.

I'm always excited about being released from my coat in the spring after a long winter, but there is something comforting about putting on long sleeves and a jacket again when summer is over.

I like the quality of the light in the fall, and snuggling up with my kids under a blanket on movie night.  I don't even mind raking.  (Which is good because there's been a lot of raking.)

And wow has this year been amazing for beautiful trees.  The last of them are finally fading here in Milwaukee, and I just feel like sharing way too many pictures of some of the ones around our neighborhood.

My kids call these 'fire trees'

That's it.  (Now it's time to make like a tree and get out of here.)


  1. Although I love, love, love my palm trees, I've got to admit that I miss the beautiful colors of the changing leaves (and maybe even the chill in the air). Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thank you for sharing the fire treesm we just don't get such gorgeous intensity around here. Your trees are stunning. :)

  3. These are beautiful! I wonder why ours are not so bright here in the UK...I guess something to do with not having such hot summers? I still love autumn though
