2020! Another Vermont Fall Foliage Season Awaits!

Happy New Year to all of our Scenes of Vermont Fall Foliage Fanatics (and lurkers!) I wish you a great year filled with good health, something we cherish most of all! As I write this, I look out my window at our bare trees and can't help but still see the beauty in their leafless limbs. After all, i...

Re: My Vermont "Bucket List" is Growing!!!

Hi Colorado Mom! Thanks for the reply. I can just smell those cookies as they come out of the oven! How fun! I'm scouting out places in Woodstock for next year after my Peacham week. I was thinking of a more "urban vibe" after such a rural stay. Plus, I want to be close to the Marsh Billing Rockefel...

Re: My Vermont "Bucket List" is Growing!!!

Hello to all on this rainy Friday pre Thanksgiving weekend in New England. I wanted to update my bucket list by mentioning that I did hit five of my Vermont "bucket to dos" this past season and it was great to visit all these new places! I was not able to hit the Danville Corn Maze, the Lavender Ess...

Re: What an atypical foliage season we had in Philly

Some may call it a "split season" but it turned out to be one of the best foliage seasons in years and very prolonged! All of our leaves are down now in northern CT but I do love stick season nonetheless! You can see so far into the woods- stone walls, hidden lakes, ponds and streams that you could ...

Re: Witness Tree

Just an update...… I went to my tree lecture last night and it was quite enlightening and very educational. The best part was being surrounded by like minded folks who care about our forests and trees and how we can better our natural landscape through tree preservation and proper land/forest manage...

Re: Witness Tree

Hi Al and Bob (if you are still lurking around this thread!) I'm attending a lecture on the not so secret life of trees in a couple of weeks by lecturer Dr. Marlyse Duguid, a forester, botanist, horticulturist, and ecologist. Here is a brief summary, "Are trees sentient; do they feel, smell, hear, r...

Re: A big Thank You!!

Hi Colorado Mom! What a sweet thing to post! So very appreciated and I'm really happy your trip turned out so well. And the fact that your daughter loved it too must have made it that more special! I'm sorry we never got to get together at Peacham or Stowe, but there is always another year, whenever...

Re: And Just When You Thought Foliage Season was Over

Hi Ed! Just so you know, foliage season is never over for me! There's always a place in my heart for Vermont and foliage season and I can close my eyes and remember every beautiful image from my trips up there. As a matter of fact, plans are already being tossed about for 2020! :wink: This is a grea...

Re: Leafer Madness-10/13/19-Pomfret, Barnard, N Woodstock-Slideshow

This was great Mark! I'm so glad you have found such awesome color on your excursions! I'm actually thinking of staying around Woodstock after my Peacham week next year. Such a great town and the surrounding hamlets and small towns are beautiful. Plus I want to revisit the Amity Pond Preserve and ta...

Good luck with the "witness tree" Al! We'll have to put it on the bucket list for next year! :D It was fun while it lasted and at least we got to meet each other in real life! Hope the rest of your foliage seeking for 2019 is productive! CT

Re: Dog Mountain, St. Johnsbury

What a beautiful day to celebrate Dog Mountains Fall Festival! Clear, crisp autumn air and the views from the Chapel of the hillsides peaking in color were gorgeous. I wanted to put a note on the wall for my dogs who have passed away but I have to tell you, it was quite emotional to be in there read...
