Weekly Winners/Sundays in My City



This week, the landscapes in Wisconsin have been absolutely stunning! We're getting short on daylight, and since I've been giving Kendall a lot of driving lessons, I haven't had a ton of time for pics, but I pulled right over to take this one, on my usual way home from work. (I just LOVE this quirky tree!)


And on Thursday evening, I really hit gold. See if you don't agree...(These are completely untouched photos! The sky was really this color; I saw two other people pulled over, also taking pictures of these unbelievable skies!!)





I felt so blessed, gazing at these gorgeous colors. What gifts!  I also took the time to drink in the smaller things in life....


I've posted these favorites on my Posterous site,where I put only my most favorite photos. (There, you can click on them to make them really pop out.)

Ah, the fall colors...so soothing to the frenzied soul.  I'm going to have to keep these handy; with Parent-Teacher Conferences on Monday and Tuesday nights, I'm not going to be seeing much daylight for a while...
