Wake me Up....when September Ends....

Nice evening after rain showers most of the afternoon in the mountains.

Foliage seems behind by a bit based on previous years' photos.  But that first cold shot finally started getting the ball rolling.  I think October 5 - 15 time frame will be the best around here.  The high-end color still seems a week out or so.   Can see the steeple of Stowe Village down there dead center bottom for reference.

The evening's are getting shorter though... this was the evening walk/hike with the dog.  It was pretty much dark when we got down.  A couple months ago it felt like the middle of the day still.

Yeah it’s changing fast day by day now.  I’d say maybe a week?  The funny thing is it usually finds it’s way to the first week or two of October regardless.  Not sure if that’s solar related, but what can happen is the foliage is just “faster” and still ends within a few days of every other year (if that makes sense).

Two years ago there was two distinct “peaks”… first was red and green in September.  Second was red/orange.  Foliage seemed to go for weeks but still ended by mid-October.

It’s just interesting the “late” foliage seasons though don’t push it back to like Halloween.  It just seems to shorten it and it all ends relatively at a similar time.

At least 50% color around the house, which seems a few days ahead of the average here - odd because we've yet to have a frost and Sept temps are running only about 0.3° BN thru yesterday.  White ash is full color with 30-50% leaf drop, but that species always leads the way into fall.

We’ll be late when we come up the weekend of 10/21.   But it’s always fun to check out Penny Cluse for breakfast and Hen of the Woods for dinner.  Problem is we’ll be staying in Alburgh.   Believe it or not the change is starting here now which seems about 5 days early.
