After some lingering summer-like days, it seems that fall is really here in Wisconsin. We've already professed our deep love of apples in a previous newsletter but we're also mad about fall colors... and obsessively tracking the fall color conditions on Travel Wisconsin (this leads directly into tracking the snow conditions starting in December. How ever did we survive before these trackers?).
Poet Catherine Jagoe always knows what to say about the seasons and how to say it in the most beautiful way possible. Get in the spirit with her ode to fall leaves.
Fall is also a great time to explore the night sky. Jim Lattis from the UW Space Place tells us what to look for overhead (constellations, bright winter stars, planets!).
Another great thing about fall? Hearty warming meals like this choucroute from cook, writer, and forager Brett Laidlaw.
Or maybe you're just eager to start knitting fall sweaters or covers for your local parking meters? This renegade band of yarn bombers might get your creative juices flowing.
Elise Schimke spent a lot of time in different campus libraries during her years at UW-Madison. Her study and quiet time turned into a project to capture in photographs the unique character of 41 college libraries.
One of our favorite things about Wisconsin Life are the animations. This season, our original comic series "Something About A Flower" is moving from comic to animation. Its creator gives us a look inside the process.
Every one of us has had the parent or other family member who let us get away with everything and anything (stay up late on a school night? Another piece of cake?). This week, Rose tests the limits with her family.
Thanks for reading and get in touch.
We love to hear about your Wisconsin life.
