Time is short today for a big blog post so I’ve decided to post pictures of our homestead in the Autumn!
Looking from the west side of our property to the pole barn and vegetable garden.
Winter is coming on fast at the Small House Homestead. The bright colors have faded and the leaves are falling. We’ve had our first hard frost already which is very early for SW Michigan!!
Standing behind our homestead looking towards the back of our home. Look at those leaves!!
But even though the bright leaves have gone for this season, the beauty of the late fall landscape remains. I think it is just as beautiful in its own unique and subdued way.
My art studio along the meadow and woodlands edge.
Here are some fall images I took of our homestead for you to enjoy.
The front of our 1,800 sq. ft. Indiana limestone Ranch-style home. I am so happy with our new roof!
The rear of our home viewed under the canopy of our many majestic White Oaks.
A slightly closer view of the rear of our home and gardens with our three season porch in view.
This is our front doorway painted a salmon color picked up from our limestone exterior.
Our gravel driveway turn-around area flower bed with its field stone edging.
The wooded property at the rear of our land is filled with sassafras trees.
The native burning bushes turn a bright pink color here.
The oak leaf hydrangeas along the back of our home under the dining room window.
Ornamental grasses along the meadow pathway.
The meadow and its wooded border overlooking the busy 109th roadway.
Little ghostie says, “enjoy the fleeting autumn colors!”
