Second Blog Of The 2021 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 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.  Eight 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.  six 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 three 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 (see picture below) was taken last Wednesday just as the colors were starting to change. This week we can begin see to see a more definitive change in the colors, and I would expect to see a much more noticeable change by next week.  What is different this year from last year, is the closest maple tree is change color before the other trees, and it is normally the other way around. 

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 to show the progression of the Fall colors.  Fall is a beautiful time of the year in New England, and even though the last couple of years have been better than the previous years, they still have not been 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 later than normal this year, I normally would have posted this first blog at least a week ago.  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 2021 Progression Of Fall Colors In Middletown, CT.

Beautiful!  The color of Fall brings back my memory of living in Boston for 13 years. It was the hard winter that pushed me out!  Thank you for sharing, George.

I had a need to travel to Northern California, about a 100 miles North of Lake Tahoe over the last few days. Fall colors are very noticeable there. We see some change of color in my local area but nothing like I experience in my travels, and you are experiencing now, George Souto.
