Third Blog Of The 2019 Progression Of Fall Colors In Middletown, CT.  Fall Has arrived in Connecticut, which means it is time for 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.  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 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 above for this year's Progression Of Fall Colors series was taken a two weeks ago, before the colors started to change.  But by last week there was already a  noticeable change in color of trees as you can see in the second picture to the left. 

The next two pictures were taken this week.  Normally I only post one picture per week, but this week the colors started to change much quicker, so I decide to post two pictures to show how the color of the trees are starting to quickly change.  The picture to the right was taken at the beginning of the week.  The weather was overcast, and on Wednesday we had heavy winds and rain which caused some of the trees furthest away to lose several of their leaves. as you can see in the picture to the right, and the one below and to the left which was taken today.

Besides noticing the loss of leaves in the trees furthest away, the tree which is closest is the slowest one to change color, but it is now also beginning to show different shades of orange and yellow.  By the next blog most of its leaves will have changed, while the other trees will lose many of their leaves.  We are now at a point that it appears this year will produce better colors than we have seen in a while. 

As I have done for the last eight years, I will continue to post pictures of this same spot at different points throughout the Fall and show the progression of the Fall colors.  

Fall is a beautiful time of the year in New England, and even though last two years were 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 throughout my 2019 Progression Of Fall Colors In Middletown, CT.

George- still colorful! We are in Omaha visiting family and noticed that there were some colorful trees but not as many as in the past. Regardless, I still love this series.

Wow, George, that's quite a change from #2. I'm glad we have some leaf color here as's not as dramatic as yours, of course, but enjoyable nonetheless.

BOY, I thought last weeks' was striking, George - this one is even more striking!

We are seeing a bit of change here in our area but, the ones in our yard are being very stubborn - in fact, I'm still getting tomatoes off of my vines! Who knew?!
