Second 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 above for this year's Progression Of Fall Colors series was taken Thursday just as the colors are starting to change.  But this week, as you can see in the picture to the left there is already noticeable change in color.

As I have done for the last nine 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, and enjoy the pictures in this Second Blog Of The 2020 Progression Of Fall Colors In Middletown, CT.

I'm with you, George... there's nothing quite like a fall season in New England. Although, having see the colors in the NC mountains, they are very reminiscent of New England.

I am really enjoying this series!  I don't get to see that kind of progression where I live.  Although, if I drive up north a little bit, I get to see it.

Subtle, but I see the change. Soon, the tree limbs will be bare again. Love, love, love fall.

Hi George,
I'm hoping next year is the year I get to enjoy the Fall colors in New England. We have some beautiful Fall foliage in the Northwest and it's my favorite season here.

Hi George:

This is such a fun series! The changes are fairly subtle but noticeable.

We are seeing the leaf color changes, too, although not to the extent you get. It sure hasn't felt like fall these last few days, around 90 each day with our fall heatwave!

While I notice a slight difference in the air, I am still not seeing sign of change in the foliage quite yet.  I suspect we are about a week to 10 days away.
