Exploring the Fall Colors of Peacham Vermont
I looked out in my garden this morning and many, no make that most of my flowers are fading away. The thing that catches my attention is the day lilies, and there are only one or two flowers left. To me this is the signal for the end of summer.
This also has me looking over images of past years and wondering what this year will bring, (don’t we all).
Peacham is a sleepy little town in the North East Kingdom (NEK). There are many cottage industry businesses there but the only store front is the Peacham store where you can pick up all sorts of things and it will take a while to get through it all.
I love to stop in and get a sandwich which is usually made on the spot for you. Ask Mark (behind the counter) for some suggestions on good viewing, as he is always helpful. Take a drive up the street to the fire company and take a walk behind the firehouse for a classic Peacham shot of the Congregational Church. (Better than the shot I have) Just a quick update! I just found out the Peacham store has gone out of business so where am I NOW going to get my sandwiches???:-(
There are many hills and farm roads to explore so plan your time well. I keep coming back looking for those perfect fall colors and… Still looking!
Early Fall Colors Foliage report
I don’t want to cause a panic, because images like this are common in September. It may be a little early but with this week’s 80s and 90s, I think the process will slow down at least for the next week or so. After that it’s up to mother nature, and she keeps her own schedules.

Sharon Fiedler of Moose Printz photography says “I think early Jeff. Some of the leaves were starting to turn in Rangely last month.”

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.
