Don’t Panic!! but early fall color reports are normal in August!
Early fall color reports are coming in for northern Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. I have a few spotters who are sending me what they are seeing. In the past couple of days Jennifer Hannux of Northeast Kingdom Photography has sent me these shots.
Jennifer says “In just the last couple of days with a few good chilly nights you can really start to see the “yellowing” of some of the leaves. There are still very spotty full color trees, but generally it’s still very green. Maples are showing the most signs of color right now…edges of leaves are of oranges and reds. It’s going to be very warm this week, temps in the 80’s and lows in the mid to upper fifties. Summer is still in full swing. Still onset for a normal peak up here in the mountains by the very end of September, maybe first week of October.
The early color is looking good. Vibrant. Hopes for the rest of the trees to follow!
Another Vermont shot
Heather Duke of Vermont tagged me in this shot from this weekend but I’m not sure about her statement. she said she saw this and thought of me… I see fall color and a big fat sheep… I know I could lose a bit of weight but come on now… Really that much???
Print winner for July
