Last of the Fall Color at the Small House Homestead

Time is short today for  a big blog post so I’ve decided to post pictures of our homestead in the Autumn! 

Barn-shack-deepsky-trees USE

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!!

Back of house sun blue sky

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.
