Its been an odd autumn. The weather has been nutty with the hurricane and the early snow storm that both took place the last few months. I hear the summer was super hot and wet. So apparently that combination of weather factors has produced a rather anti-climatic foliage show this year. Its been dull. Leaves have been turning brown and are withering on the branch. The red maple that usually has spectacularly red leaves, has dropped its leaves before it changed. Its a little disappointing given I have been looking forward to what is normally the most glorious time of year here in New England. But even though I have seen a better show in the past, its pretty and smells crisp and makes it cozy to be inside on a cool morning. And there is always next year….
