If you can view the video this is what I was looking at for most of September. I was rather taken aback that we were having pine needle showers and no colour change. This be what I see from me office window.
In the lead-up to me annual Halloween story, I thought to entertain you with the autumn photos of this year's New Hampshire tree crop. I would like to say that the leaves did not turn colour until recently, very late actually and I think the early leaf peepers did not get to enjoy the fall season as in years past, last year in particular, being rather spectacular. I am told because of the unusually warm weather and lack of rainfall, the seasonal change is proceeding at a snail's pace. I be fine with that I be, because I rather enjoy the long fall with the summer-like weather letting yours truly enjoy the outdoors later than usual. By September we have colour change but not this year. At this rate, we are told the leaves should still be on the trees into November. I'll lift me mulled cider to that!
So it was a slow start. Here are a few shots of early fall. Late September down the road where the lake dwellers live.
|Our little lake community on down the road on September 28 well beyond when colour should have popped|
|The following week on October 4th, not much change, this be a nearby field|
|If you compare this shot to last years, well it be sadly lacking in colour.|
|The wife took this shot, it looks like a painting. The bog down the road.|
|Beautiful morning with the sun streaming between the trees.|
|Our road, not as pretty as last year.|
