First Blog Of The 2018 Progression Of Fall Colors In Middletown, CT

Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 NMLS #65149

First Blog Of The 2018 Progression Of Fall Colors In Middletown, CT.  Fall Has arrived in Connecticut, which means it is time for me to begin my Progression Of Fall Colors series I started seven years ago.  This is a series I hoped to continue for many more years to come, and have been able to do so far. The first two years the pictures were of a farm which is only about a minute walk from my house.  five 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.  Three years ago I decided to change locations again to a site on Lyman's Orchards in Middlefield, CT.  But once again that site did not produce the colors I had hoped for, so this year I am going to keep it simple and do my Progression of Fall Colors blog of my back yard.

The first picture for this year's Progression Of Fall Colors series was taken a week ago, before the colors started to change.  But in just a week I have already started to see a little change in color.  So when I post my next blog next week I expect that the color change will be noticeable.  As I have done for the last seven years, I will post pictures of this same spot at different points throughout the Fall to show the progression of the Fall colors. 

Fall is a beautiful time of the year in New England, and even though last year was better than the previous years, they still were not what I had hoped for.  I have become spoiled by the beautiful colors we normally see during the Fall, so I am hoping this year the colors are truly outstanding.  My favorite 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 get a feel for what the colors will be like this year, but I will be trying to show the progression of the trees as they turn colors throughout the Fall. 

Fall Has Arrived In Middletown, Connecticut and I hope you follow my series of the change in Fall colors starting with this First Blog Of The 2018 Progression Of Fall Colors In Middletown, CT.

George Souto - What a beautiful yard you have! It looks so green and lush! I can't wait to see more!!!

As for Flower Mound, it continues to rain. It stopped a bit today. Nearly all the leaves are off around my house. A few yellow leaves cling to the branches. I think we skipped Fall this year.
