New England Foliage Report
Just a quick and short update on the colors starting to show up in Northern New England. Maine’s official fall foliage website went active this week with their first report and everything is green in all 7 zones. You can go to their site and sign up for their reports or just come here as I tend to repeat much of their stuff.
On the Ground foliage Reports
First, up in Caribou Maine, Angelina sent in these images and before you get to excited look at the last one. You can see this is the only tree along this street that is turning.
Over in Vermont I have a report from Linda Baird-White of Vermont Perspectives from earlier today near Tunbridge Vermont (on VT110).
If you are wondering what is setting off the colors (and about time if you ask me) is that the temps are dropping up north (perfectly normal also). John sent me these from his blog and weather station (NEKWX in the Northeast Kingdom and his Island Pond weather station had frost last night and the temps over night as reported by the NOAA station at Burlington VT tell the tale.

My Read on the Foliage
Except for the drought areas the right areas are starting to turn and this week we will hopefully see more turning. We are seeing a little color in the White mountains, Northern Maine, and Vermont… It’s starting!!!
