Seasons spinning ’round again

The sun came up the morning after the Brewer season ended and, because we live in Wisconsin, it (intermittently) lit up a gorgeous amber and lemon yellow skyline.

Life is still good here and we are still grateful.

We enjoyed our little four-season run, when the Brewers, Packers and Bucks seasons intersected with fall. But those brilliant colors — sky blue, honey gold and forest green only last a little while in combination.

Then they fade and give way to equally celebratory seasons of thankfulness and joy.

We get it.

I’ve lived in the Midwest my whole life and I understand that that there is a time for every season, though some last longer than we’d like (I’m looking at you winter of 2018), and some seem like they were barely here at all (Hello fall.)

We can’t control the seasons, but we can enjoy them while they’re here.

I loved all the excitement the #OurCrewOurOctober pennant race brought this state. I’m hoping our Packers will come back from the bye week ready to roll. I’m looking forward to seeing the Bucks play in their new stadium.

And, yesterday, I took a walk through the woods and soaked in all the last, fading colors of fall.

It occurred to me yesterday as I strolled through the woods, that the colors of fall — sky blue, forest green, honey gold — are also the colors of the Bucks, Brewers and Packers.
I played tag with the sun all afternoon, but when we connected, she really lit the place up.
Fall color season is winding down, but there are still a few gorgeous combinations out there.
Those clouds were confounding me, but every now and then they let me get a good shot.
Mother Nature arranged this sort of natural cornucopia, which a deer clearly enjoyed. I liked all the new growth on the old tree.

Wisconsin in the fall — harvested fields, red barns, fluffy clouds and a few patched of color.
I like the lines in this picture and the way the tree trunks frame it.
Go Pack Go!
This is what that fickle sunlight can do to a quiet path through the woods.
So, autumn’s winding down a little too quickly but she’s taking her bow in a blaze of glory.

    1. Thanks for catching the reference! I can’t get that song out of my head , but it’s a good one to have circling around. 🙂

  1. Beautiful autumn photos, Laura. Your title reminds me of a line from an old Harry Chapin song…

    1. Thanks! We’ll be in good shape for next year. I just hope we do better against LA on Sunday 😉 Are you a Red Sox fan?
