Okay. So I did a bit of research. Shut up, yes I am a teacher, it is in our BLOOD!
I discovered that FROST is the culprit for creating a most spectacular fall. When an late frost arrives the leaves begin their "shutting down" process much later, therefore storing more "color/food" in their leaves.
Isn't this little Methodist church just the CUTEST!?
Love me some corn fields ... when I see them I am home.Yes, I know, my family are all Michigan born and bred, I was the one raised in "ENEMY TERRITORY!" I can truly appreciate TREES - everywhere!
It wouldn't be Michigan without a LAKE picture. Here is one of the SIX lakes that I pass on my way to work every morning.
Teacher fun fact: Did you know? That if you stand anywhere in Michigan you are never more than 6 miles from a lake. Awesome.
How quaint is this little school house? It just needs a little tender loving care. Everyday I pass it. Everyday I want to buy it.
I pass SO MANY barns on the way to school - reminders that "home" is in the midwest.
They just look so perfect in the fall ... corn fields, bright trees, bursts of red. Love.
I even found a little fall creeping up our apartment building!
Thanks for coming for a drive with me!
In honor of this totally FAB season, the kiddos did LEAF RUBBINGS and created leaf poems.
