The Colors of Autumn in Chicago From Above

Just because Christmas music has been on the radio for a week doesn’t mean we’re done with Fall yet.  Just look at the tops of the eco-striving buildings across downtown Chicago and you can see green roofs turning yellow, orange, and brown faster than that old pumpkin you forgot is on your porch because you don’t go outside anymore.

The chestnuts over at YoChicago! roasted these pictures from the roof of 727 West Madison.  Since Christkindlemarket Chicago has gone virtual this year, microwave some apple cider in last year’s boot mug and snuggle in to some seasonal splendor.
