Around the Farm in Mid October

An old seed planter sits in the tall grass. It was left on our farm long ago by a previous owner.... Jack is more interested in the neighborhood cows.
A small organic dairy joins our property to the South.

The oaks in the forest were near peak on this day.

A view towards our farm from the "back 40"

A week later all the leaves were gone. Autumn is very unpredictable in Wisconsin. You never know how long it will last. We try to make the most of each day while we can.

Chris, your first photograph would make a beautiful painting...

Lovely to see your autumn. Cooler days mean more time for creating. It's a warm late spring day here. I'm in my studio but the garden is calling.

You live in such a beautiful place :-)

Everything is very unpredictable here at the moment. We've just had the coldest October since 1945, and the wettest for ages to. We are averaging 1-2 days of sun, then another 3 of rain. Not much of a spring. Plenty of grass for the stock, but not great for the veges.

It is all gorgeous to me, even without the leaves (though the colors do make me gasp for breath!). You are very lucky to have such a close physical connection with so much nature!
