Autumn Views from Central Connecticut:
Make a cup of hot tea or cider, and wherever you are in the world, sit back for a moment and glance through a New England window at the first fall of the new millennium. Enjoy!
I'm always grateful for the weeping willow trees. They hold on to their golden hues a bit longer than less feisty foliage and allow me to cling to the notion that it's still fall in New England, even when the season is well past its peak.
As we roll into November here in central Connecticut, there are still some patches of pretty fall colors, but many trees are starting to look pretty bare.
The golden leaves on the most colorful tree outside my window are starting to flutter their way to the ground. I hate it when the leaves leave!
Fall is finally in full swing, and the view outside my window here in central Connecticut is resplendent with the golds and oranges that only autumn can concoct.
The trees outside my window are starting to take on a bit of a golden glow that you'll see if you look carefully. The inset photo in the lower left corner, taken at a bit of a different angle, shows unmistakable gold color. It's definitely looking a lot like fall in central Connecticut.
Yippee! There's finally a touch of rusty red crowning the green scene outside my window. Can you see it in the enlarged inset photo? The color in Connecticut is actually coming along a bit better than my view would suggest, so you're in for a treat just about anywhere you're headed in New England this weekend.
Although I've been seeing a few signs of fall color out and about on my travels, you'll have to go much further north than Connecticut this weekend if you want to get an idea of what New England is capable of when it comes to putting on an autumn color show. It was still looking pretty green when my chaotic cat, Spike, and I peeked out the window this week.
It's still lush and green outside my window as we pass the mid-September mark. Some experts are predicting a fabulous foliage season due to the wet summer weather.
