Chilly air moves in to get the color moving!
Well I don’t know about all of you but we awoke to very chilly air here in Salem. And I have yet to check all the over night temps but it seems Errol NH was to have a freeze. I’ll be heading out on Sat morning to Northern NH and VT to see what kind of color has developed since last week.
Jim Salge, who is Yankee’s foliage blogger is forecasting good color through out the region and he seems to be agreeing with me as to the early color was just that, some early trees. The bulk of the color will be developing after more nights like this last one.
BUT! If the nights go steadily cold 35-40 degrees and the days stay sunny (like it has been) then we could see some peak color arriving early in the far northern areas sooner, rather than later.
The Maine foliage report came out yesterday and even in their far north they are only at 30-40% but after a night like last night… Brrr… The color will be pushing south…
Also… Pam down in Carver says: “Greetings from Carver #5 go us!!! (#5 refers to my top 5 things during foliage season) Anyway, the picking has started. Last week there were 2 bogs in Wareham being wet harvested and starting today and yesterday there are a lot of bogs getting prepped. I am heading to a friends bog this afternoon to get some pictures, I will post them on the FaceBook foliage page if I can figure out how :p.
This is the BEST time of year!!! Cool nights ad comfy days, leaves changing and fall decorations.
To clarify, the bogs I am speaking of are in Carver, but Wareham and Middeboro will be picking as well.”

In case you don’t know, I also have a Facebook New England foliage page. And in between these articles, I will hang out there, posting tidbits and even answering questions. So if you have read the article that is up on this page but you want to chat, then stop in and say hi…
but people call me Jeff Foliage.
I have several pages that I write blogs for such as: http://www.4cornersnewengland.com/
My most popular blog is for Leaf peepers: Jeff Foliage.com.
I live in Salem, Massachusetts and work as a blogger and Travel Photographer. I'm also the founder of the New England Photography Guild.
Feel free to visit me on my blogs and see what life in New England is like.
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.
