First Blog Of The 2020 Progression Of Fall Colors In Middletown, CT.

Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages NMLS #65149

Fall Has arrived in Connecticut, which means it is time for me to begin my Progression Of Fall Colors series I started Nine 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.  Seven 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.  Five 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 two year ago 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 Thursday 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 eight 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.  However, the trees seem to be turning color earlier than normal this year.  It is still to early to get a feel for what the colors will be like, 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 2020 Progression Of Fall Colors In Middletown, CT.

Hello George - anyone who correctly answers Kathy Streib question with a return to a well-loved series of posts is deserving of a wonderful display of Fall colors.  Even in 2020.  Or should I say especially this year.

Good Morning George Souto 

People in AR were wondering when your Fall series would begin. Here in Northeastern Coastal Massachusetts, we haven't seen to much color change but it has started

I am seeing colors changing here in Santa Barbara.  Our liquid amber is full of colorful leaves.  Of course, this is nothing compared to New England. A

Hi George,
I've never been to New England in the Fall but was supposed to be there this year. Sadly, COVID-19 put the kibosh on those plans. Maybe next year.  I will live vicariously through your Fall Progression. 

Happy Sunday!

Our colors don't seem to have changed any, yet!  However, I suspect they will begin quickly now!

George, here the ferns that grow under trees are turning brown.  It takes only a couple cool nights before their delicate frond and leaflets are on the way to season end.
