    Default The blaze begins anew...

    It is that time of year again, when the leaves act as chameleons and begin changing their colors. It has been a very hot and humid Summer this year in New England.

    I sensed it was coming Saturday and stated out loud: "The leaves will start changing around Tuesday." Well, I spotted my first small batch on a group of maples, on MA-31. On Tuesday, of all days!

    More updates as time allows and relevance dictates.

    Already? Sheesh, where did the summer go? Going to have to dust off our Fall Colors reports page again. Looking forward to the play-by-play reports from Massachusetts.

    Default Fall is here

    I went for a long walk yesterday afternoon and there were several signs that the fall season has finally come to us. We had a beautiful summer this year, very hot and sunny but now we have to face it, winter's coming (sigh):o(( Despite that unfortunate fact (I hate winter:) we still have some time left to admire the colourful leaves that are spreading around in the area. By the end of September, usually the leaves are beginnning to fall but they are just starting to get some color. Like Timbo, I've been spotting a few trees a few weeks back that were already changing color but their leaves never fell, as if the summer decided to linger on for a while!

    Default ...pause...

    Well, in the intervening month-plus since I made that first post, almost any change around here has ceased. The weather really held on for a long time this year - it was in the 70s-80s most of the past few weeks during the day, with warm nights as well, and humid - but now that it's almost October, I guess it's inevitable.

    We are looking at our first day under 40 this week, and that usually gets things moving again. Some of the other signs we are seeing are migrating butterflies, and the birds as in Gen's pics.

    I've been keeping my eye out in the usual spots, most everywhere near here is the same. We took a walk to Dana Common in the Quabbin yesterday (it's nice to be mobile again!), and everything is green there, too. I want to get back there to check out those ancient maples when they're giving a show.
