There was less color around here this October than in other recent years. The reds of the wild blueberry fields and the colors of most trees and bushes at their peak seemed to be spotty and subtle, more pastel-like.

Perhaps this was because we have had no real cold snaps yet this Fall. We’ve also had less rain to keep the leaves soft. Many leaves dried before they could turn and then they fell victim to the October winds.

We may have been spoiled by prior stellar Fall showings, but (as you can see) we have no reason to feel sorry for ourselves.
