Autumn is coming and there is nothing I can do to stop it.
When you live in Wisconsin you can count on the leaves starting to turn by mid-September.
And after a tough weekend, involving an extended family member I thought a little solitude would be nice.
So early this morning I took a drive out near the cranberry marshes. There is something so peaceful and serene with the mist floating off this early morning scene.
We are surrounded by cranberry marches in Western Wisconsin. Wisconsin is the largest producer of cranberries in the nation!
Cranberry Festival in the nation. During the last weekend in September it goes from a population of 300 to about 200,000! It is an amazing festival and I attend nearly every year. There are 3 miles of booths and about 1300 vendors. Cranberry tours, cranberry princesses, entertainment, food and a huge parade. If you want something made out of cranberries from soap to candy they will have it.
Our motels and shops and restaurants are overflowing! I used to work at an area motel and most of our reservations for the Cranberry Festival were made a year in advance.
I will be sure to take pics this year.
More to come.
And my daughter keeps telling me she has little cramps but then nothing. I think she is having Braxton- Hicks but boy I hope the real thing is coming soon!
I am joining the Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays. Check it out!
