So New England is kind of well known for its autumn color, right? Which is what I had in mind when this week’s theme was selected way back at the start of September.
But autumn color is a tricky, capricious thing, and if the complicated web of sun/rain/temperatures/moon phase (just kidding on that last one. I think) isn’t juuuuust so, well, you get an “eh” fall in terms of color.
Which is what we seem to have this year. The maples are almost completely done, and they never really reached that level of color that I’ve seen here before, where you get dizzy just looking at a single leaf.
All that’s left are the oak trees, and the ones that are turning are a very rich rust color, which is lovely in its own way, but…well, you really can’t beat the maples.
But it’s ok! Because last year was a spectacular year, and I have the photographic evidence to prove it, all resplendent in shades of orange.
(both of those were pulled from this post from last year. Hop over for more pictures of gloriousness in the form of leaves)
