First Blog Of The 2019 Progression Of Fall Colors In Middletown, CT

First Blog Of The 2019 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 eight 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.  Six 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.  Four 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 last year I decided to keep it simple and do my Progression of Fall Colors blog of my back yard, and will continue to do so again this year.

The first picture for this year's Progression Of Fall Colors series was taken on yesterday just as the colors are starting to change.  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 2019 Progression Of Fall Colors In Middletown, CT.

Hello George - what a great treat.  A wonderful tradition.  It's sure to be enjoyed by former Northeasteners and others who miss the change in seasons.

Hello George, I bet you miss me! Anyway, there's no progression of fall colors here in Huntsville. It was in the 90's most of last month and Oct...99 degrees was predicted for today, but I'm sure it's over 100!

This is the time of year that I look forward to the change in leaf colors here in Sacramento.  I haven't witnessed any change yet.  But, I know it is coming.

Thank you everyone for your comments.  Due to the unusually warm weather Fall has gotten a slow start this year, so I don't know what to expect.  Hopefully we will have a very colorful 2019.

Hi George Souto,

I have seen your other series and look forward to the progression. Somehow, I think this is going to be your best pick.  Can't wait to see the rest. 

Fall in my neighborhood does not arrive until November unless we get a freak freeze before that time.

WOOHOO!! Can't believe it's finally time - you know I miss your posts, George!

And, love the beginning of fall too - the crisp evenings just put an extra spring in your step, don't they?!

As to the photo location - sometimes things are best in our own backyards, huh?!!
