Autumn

Because this is Vermont and because this is the season we excel color-wise, I thought I should post some photos of how lovely it is here.

Our hydrangeas have turned an incredible shade of rose, much darker than normal.  I’m guessing it is because of the perfect summer we have had.

My friend Jenna and I hiked the Wethersfield trail up Mt Ascutney  yesterday.  The trail was steep and rocky but it was lovely being in the woods, at least after the initial thunderstorm went by.  Here and there were bright, beautiful trees in among the conifers and those still hanging on to their chlorophyll.  It still is early here but the red maples are brilliant now and the sugar maples aren’t too far behind.  Soon the roads will be filled with leaf peepers (Vermont speak for tourists who come to see the trees).  We have our own little favorite haunts to see the spectacular foliage.  Come visit in the next few weeks and we’ll take you on our route.
