Trees in my mother-in-law's backyard getting ready for the winter cold.
Not just the trees display fall colors. Here - sedum adds some burgundy color to nature's palette.
Such beautiful colors!
We even spotted a few black squirrels (sciurus carolinensis), which I can't say I ever saw growing up, even though they are supposed to be relatively common in the Midwest.
Did I mention it was beautiful?
I especially loved the contrast of the white birch tree bark against the autumn leaves.
These are all views that I loved growing up in Wisconsin, but appreciate even more now that I'm living in Texas. It is certainly nice getting back and getting a little dose of a true Midwest fall.
