Autumn Views from Central Connecticut: 1999 Archive
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 last fall of the 1900s. Enjoy!

The once colorful tree on the left side of my view is now completely bare--a wind storm during the week ripped the leaves from their limbs and even blew away all of the leaves littered on the ground in the view from five days ago.

Well, the weather finally cooperated outside my window so that I could get a new photo, and, from a slightly different angle this week, you can actually see touches of gold creeping into the landscape.

Not much has changed, except my mangy black cat, Spike, decided to peek out the window with me this week.

Connecticut did suffer quite a drought this summer, but predictions of an early fall may be inaccurate. Everything is still very green outside my window as of mid-September.
