There was a lot going on this weekend in Madison. Many of the folks you might have seen wandering around the streets were checking out the Tri Kappa Tour of Homes, a chance to peek inside some of the amazing homes around Jefferson County. On Saturday, Main St. closed down for Soup, Stew, Chili and Brew, the best soup by far in my humble opinion being the Indian cauliflower stew at the RiverRoots booth. Up at the college we saw the debut of the historical drama, When Jenny Lind Came to Town, based on the visit of this famous 19th century singer along with P.T. Barnum to Madison in 1851.
All wonderful fall events, and the weather on Friday and Saturday was perfect. The highs were in the 70s and the sun was shining. On Sunday, things got a little cloudy, a little windy, a little rainy, and that’s when I decided to go out for a walk and experience one of my own favorite fall events in Madison, the turning of the leaves.
