The beauty of our favorite, fleeting season has left me breathless. The colors fill my heart with joy and wonderment but at the same time sadness as I believe this year was one for the books and who knows when we will have a perfect season like this again. We had perfect conditions leading into an awesome foliage season. Why does autumn goes by in the blink of an eye? We did get a chance to visit Stowe for 2 days which, unfortunately, has been our shortest Vermont excursion in years. Due to projects at the State of CT I couldn't take much time off. We stayed at the Green Mountain Inn and loved it. Happy we decided to move our base camp after many years in Mendon//Killington area.
I am very curious how everyone rates this beautiful year! It seems to me that it came early and hung around for a long while. The colors were so brilliant, the days perfection. I savor all of your pictures and wish I had the eye of an artist to be half as good as the photographers that post on this fabulous forum. Now, and this is the truth, I will wait for a beautiful snowfall. After living in Florida, aka God's waiting room, for 8 long years I promised everyone and myself I will never complain about snow or cold. When you live in a place where every day is the same you learn to treasure change. I am a New Englander through and through.
My area of CT is still beautiful but alot of leaves have dropped after the heavy rain we had the other night. Today I will enjoy my grandsons championship football game and tomorrow start the task of cutting down my perennials and cleaning up the yard.
