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.”

Peacham Vermont in Fall Colors — 6 Comments

  1. Hi Jeff! I live in the NEK (West Charleston) near the Canadian Border. Give me a holler if you need any early foliage updates. I am 9 minutes from Lake Willoughby, Lake Salem, Echo Lake, Brownington Pond, etc. All my best, Patti P.

    • Hi Patti, I would love any updates you can offer. I work a fulltime job so I can only head north on my weekends. I can offer to share it on my New England Fall Foliage FB page if it’s just newsworthy. If it’s more artistic, then I will include it in my Wednesday article (must receive by Tuesday afternoon) and I will mention name and link to your website. Can’t currently offer more than that but I do have a good readership in Aug-Oct. Let me know what you think!

      • Eeek, another message missed. I am sorry, Jeff. I did not receive email response (must have left box unchecked). I found your comment by googling my name tonight (party girl on Saturday night!) and I am amazed at how much I’ve missed. I will be more vigilant in fall 2015! Thanks Jeff! Patti P

        • Hi Patti, Not a problem. It’s very hard to keep track of everything. Of this, I’m quite aware. I’m sitting here on a Saturday night watching TV… So I’m a big party person also. 🙂 If you have time visit my Fall foliage Facebook page. and if you have time and a autumn report I would love to hear about it.

  2. Hello Jeff,

    This year I’ll be visiting New England. At sept 25th we arrive at Boston, where we gonna stay for 2 days. After that we’re going to the White Mountains, Adirondacks and after that we go to the state Michigan.
    I want to know if you could tell me how far the folliage will be in the week of 9/25 – 10/3 in New England/Adirondacks. Because I read that the good weather may slow it down.
    We’re comming from Amsterdam/The Netherlands, to see the spectacle of the Indian Summer in NorthEast USA. So I hope it will be a good week for us, to visit New England.

    Thank you in advance for your answer.

    • goede dag!
      Well the Indian summer comment (I think) may come from an article a year or two back (not really accurate) But between the 25th to the 3rd of October should be very nice around Sugar hill NH and over to Saint Johnsbury in Vermont and across to Burlington. From there you can drive down Route 7 and catch the ferry across to NY state. and I would stay on 73 or 86 near Lake Placid but I think if you stay more northerly you will be fine!`
