Autumn Mums and Foliage Reports
The trees are mum about autumn in a lot of green today with barely tinges of color showing at this lower elevation in Vermont. I see photographs of up north on Carol's View of New England blog to see the same. I'm confident the fall colors will be showing more reds, oranges, and golds soon.
The Columbus Day holiday is usual a busy leaf peeper* week. This year it falls on 10 October, the Monday after next. Until then, above are some rusty gold mums for color.
October begins this year on Saturday. This is one of the most exciting months of the year. I'm brain storming posts for October that are heavy on pumpkins, and, editing another gentle scary story to post.
In addition to photographs and first hand reports, check out:
