Fourth Blog Of The 2021 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.  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 below for this year's Progression Of Fall Colors series was taken just as the colors were starting to change and there wasn't much color yet.  By the second picture a week later we can begin to see a more definitive change in the colors.  Last week the change in colors were more obvious as you can see in the  third picture below.  Also in the third picture you can start to see some of the trees losing their leaves. This week the picture above, and fourth picture below, were taken less than a week from the previous one.  However, the color change is more significant than the week before.  The colors are changing quicker now, so I will most likely post another blog in a few days.  Also we are supposed to get significant rain and wind today and tomorrow, so there is a good possibility many of the leaves will be blown off the trees.

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 leaves 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 my first blog this year in this series at least a week earlier, but the change in color started later than normal.  We are about half way through the change in colors, and are now starting to get a good idea of what the colors will be like this year.

Fall Has Arrived In Middletown, Connecticut and I hope you follow my series of the change in Fall colors throughout my series of the 2021 Progression Of Fall Colors In Middletown, CT

Hello, George Souto; your photos brought back beautiful memories of when I was living in New England (Boston).  We frequently hopped in the car and drove for hours to inhale the stunning beauty of Fall foliage. It was my favorite time of the year. Thank you for sharing!

Hi George- I love seeing the changing colors of the leaves. It looks like some at the top may have fallen.

Hello, Endre Barath, Jr.; I lived in Boston from 1974 to 1986 and witnessed the most extraordinary celebration of the 200th year of this Great country we lived in on July 4th, 1976! If I saw you during that time, I probably couldn't tell the difference if it was you or Neil Diamond.  All foreigners looked alike (to me)! 😄

Good morning, George... big changes in just one week... and I suspect next week they will be even more noticeable.

Hi George - last nights storm probably removed many more leaves.  That is a shame.

When I was out and about yesterday, I noticed that Sacramento leaves are also beginning to color.  We lag behind you folks in New England.
