Early fall foliage in Vermont's North East Kingdom

Vermont farm showing early color

Just in case you didn’t know… New England’s most colorful season is just around the corner… Have you made your reservations? Have you even started planning your routes yet? Well fall foliage is already starting to make itself known up in Vermont…

WAAAYY too early for my tastes but fear not good leaf peeper! Because I’ll do my best to keep you in the know.
Just stick here and we’ll discuss foliage finding techniques and what makes a good fall foliage picture…  For instance…

Which do you prefer C4C? (Color for the sake of color) or do you like the church steeple sticking up amid red, gold and orange  canopy? Lets compare notes…

Whatever you like, this is the place to chat about it…

OH! and the image posted here is from Linda Baird-White of the New England Photography Guild. She took and posted this yesterday (17 August) up in Northern Vermont. More of her work can be found at

I started with Yankee Magazine as their first blogger on everything fall foliage. Now I blog on my own blog on my favorite subject, telling leaf peepers where the fall foliage is showing up in New England and helping them (to some extent) plan their fall foliage vacations.

  2. Great! Love to see the pics.. You could upload them (if it works in the foliage report topic of the forum). Yes the leaves seen above are early even by Vermont standards but I also heard from an insider at Yankee Magazine that some early beginnings of color can be see in the swampy areas around the Monadnock area near Dublin NH.
    I don’t think anyone has anything to worry about and the trees like to see how much panic they can get the humans into by turning a few leaves early…
    It’s when I see what appears to be healthy trees all turning before the end of August.. Then I’d begin to worry…
    So if I don’t tell you to worry, then don’t worry…
    This is a worry free zone!

  3. A bit early don’t you think Jeff? We have a lot of similar “break-through” type trees/bushes around here, but I thought it was just due to the stress of cold/rain -> warm/dry -> rain again. Not sure what to attribute them to. I’ll try to get you some pictures to show you what we are seeing around here.
