Fourth Blog Of The 2017 Progression Of Fall Colors In Durham, CT.  We are in the middle of Fall here in Connecticut, which means I am half way through my Progression Of Fall Colors series I started six years ago.  The first two years the pictures were of a farm which is only about a minute walk from my house.  Three years ago I decided to change the location for the 2014 Progression Of Fall Color Series to a lake about 5 minutes from my house on RT17.  I tried that location for two years, but the colors were not as good as I expected them to be.  So last year I decided to change locations again to this present location on a site of Lyman's Orchards in Durham CT.

As I have done for the last six years, I will post pictures of this same spot at different points throughout the Fall to show the progression of the Fall colors.  I posted my first blog this year in the 2017 Progression Of Fall Colors In Durham, CT about three weeks ago, and my latest blog last Friday.  

The weather has been unusually warm for this time of year which has delayed the leaves turning color.  The weather was also very dark and gloomy earlier this month, as you can see in the first picture. However, you will see in this 2nd picture the weather had started to clear up the following week, and the trees started to change color. Last week the weather had finally started to feel more like Fall.  The temperatures  become cooler, the air more crisp, and the days clearer and brighter.  The leave finally began to change color quickly, and increase in color in the third picture. 

I had start to become hopeful that bright Fall colors might becoming our way, but this week has made that possibility doubtful, and disappointing.  We got some severe wind gust mid week along with heavy rain, which has caused many trees to lose their leaves much quicker than normal. This is very evident in this week's picture.  It is especially noticeable towards the right hand side of the picture.  Last week the trees to the right had turned an orange/red color, but if you look at those same trees just a week later they have lost their leaves, as have some of the others trees as well. 

Call me overly optimistic, but I am still holding out hope for beautiful Fall colors from the remaining trees that still have leaves.  My favorite Fall colors are the trees with yellow, orange, and rust color leafs when they blend together.  

Anyone planning to come to New England to enjoy our Fall colors at their peak, should plan on coming between the last two weeks in October to the beginning of November.  It is still to early to make a final decision on the Fall colors this year, but it is not looking promising. I will continue to try to show the progression of the trees as they turn color in the final weeks of Fall, until they have become bare for the Winter. 

Fall Has Arrived In Durham Connecticut and I hope you follow my 2017 Progression Of Fall Colors In Durham, CT.

In some ways it looked like it went backwards but when I read your post I saw why. This is a strange fall here too.

George Souto beautiful photos.  We were just in Tennessee and were there before the leaves turned color.  Our fall colors here in Hawaii are all green!  LOL.

Good morning George - I have notice the delay in color change this year.  The norway maple at my house still has not changed.

Good morning George.  A bit more color this week, but not a very dramatic change.
