Third 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 two weeks ago as colors were starting to change.  But by last week, as you can see in the picture to the left there was already some change in color.  

This week the change in color is more noticeable as you can see in the picture below and to the right, and from here on out each week will produce more noticeable changes.  So by this time next week we should be able to determine what the quality of the Fall colors will be this year.

As I have done for the last ten 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.  As I stated above, it is still to early to get a feel for what the colors will be like, but by next week we should have a much better idea. 

Fall Has Arrived In Middletown, Connecticut and I will be trying to show the progression of the trees as they turn colors throughout the Fall. I hope you will continue to follow my series of the change in Fall colors, and enjoy the pictures in this Third Blog Of The 2020 Progression Of Fall Colors In Middletown, CT.

Hi George,  Thanks for the continuation of fall color progression - seems like it starts so slow, then after the first few change - within days full colors.

IN PA we are already seeing trees beginning to drop their leaves, as much rain as we have had, it still seems dry, and hot, so trees are early in my opinion shedding their summer coat.

Hello George - although much different than New England, we can even see subtle changes as Fall hits Southern California.

George Souto - The progression of change is very beautiful. You are capturing them well! Did you get a lot of rain this past spring and summer? Your trees are full of leaves, bursting with colors!

Hi George,
My brother is visiting from Oregon this weekend and we're planning to take a fall foliage drive today. Some of the trees in town are beyond prime already so I'm hoping it's not too late. 

Thank you for sharing your progression of fall.

Hi George - fall is really starting to show up in your yard.  I look foward to watching the progression of color grow richer and richer and then gently shifts into - wow - it's almost winter time!

Hello George Souto - I enjoy your progression of fall color posts.  We certainly do not see such colorful changes in Fall where I live ... The Land of Oz, aka California.
