Re: Woodstock and surrounding

oct 20? sticks by then. but, i like the soft mouse gray color of the hills once the sticks arrive. add a little sting in the air if it gets cold and it feels like minnesota---with hills. as far as cloudland is concerned, who knows? the mysteries of road work in vermont are even more perplexing to me...

Woodstock and surrounding

Woodstock and the surrounding area continues to be about a week ahead of last year, although the rapid (and a bit uneven) development of color a week ago has slowed a bit. Today there was strong wind in the afternoon, and some leaves blew off the trees. Another four or five days or so to go here. Th...

Re: Foliage in Quechee

Re: Foliage in Quechee

Years ago I used to think Oct 12-15 give or take a few days was about right in the Woodstock, Quechee, Pomfret, Bridgewater area. The last few years I would say Oct 15-18 give or take a few days is about right. But, every year is different. Here are two images. One is along Cloudland Road on Oct. 16...

Re: HELP! We are here...color is not

I am sympathetic with those who are not finding the color they expect, although my experience at leaf hunting here is that October 15 is late in the leaf season more often than you might think, something to keep in mind in planning for the future. Notwithstanding this, there is still good color, you...

Woodstock/Pomfret

Color in this area is yellow to orange with some green still mixed in. Some brighter colors on the back roads in Pomfret and Barnard, some reds even, which are not common here in any year. Try Allen Hill Rd. in Pomfret/Barnard. Further ripening of color here may be interrupted by leaf drop, which ha...
