Here in Northern CT we are a week early in color. I'm hoping our local VTers will have some idea soon about the seasonal progression. Normally, I wait until the 3rd week in September to guesstimate about the color changes but reports are coming in about the early leaf changes as well.
Friends in the tree business agree. It's early this year. It's all good. Even with this warm week we are having, the days are shortening significantly now and that is one of the main pieces of the puzzle.
Keep us posted up there in VT!
Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot
Heading to Woodstock for the Woodworking and Forest Weekend in two weeks, hopefully to meet up with Minnesotaman. Should see some decent color around there at that time.
The colors were coming on strong yesterday near the Mass/CT border and in the mountain ridges. I'll be in VT next weekend for Woodstock's Forest Days at Marsh Billings Rockefeller National Park and should see some of the changes up there to report. Some photos are now coming in from up north with confirmation of early season color. Maybe a week or less earlier than normal, but really not that significant. Anyways, where I'm headed the first weekend it doesn't matter because I'm going to Manchester for the hiking and other activities!
In the meantime, I hope our locals can assess the VT scene and report back here! Minnesotaman arrives in a couple of days so he should be reporting back soon.
PS. I can't believe I'm leaving next week!!!!
