Technically, Fall began on September 21. I’m saying “technically” because in Texas we are still experiencing days in the 90s. Some years, we’ve even hit the 100s. That’s not fun in July, and I really hate it during the fall. But so far this year we’re experiencing a rather mild and wet fall. All the rain is welcome because we had fire scares back in the summer. Nothing like the poor folks in the western part of the country and Canada. Still, scary.
No leaves turning yet. We don’t get color change until late November, sometimes even in December. But oh, I love to see the leaves change. I’m a sucker for all those FB posts that show the glorious colors. You know I’m a fan of New England, but one year we went to the northwest, Washington and Oregon, and they have great color, too.
Do you decorate for the seasons? I do, at least for fall. Love pumpkins, and I set them out all over. And of course, leaves. I’m not one of those folks who is happy to see Christmas decorations out already in the stores. That makes me nuts, but yeah, can’t bring out the fall stuff too early. So, I decided to show you some of my favorite fall pictures. I have a lot of these and will get some more next month when we go to Maine, so I may show more for my October post, if we’re lucky and find good color.
White Mountain Resort in New Hampshire, the first place we stayed when visiting New England.
Stowe, VT. It was a warmer fall than usual and we had to drive all the way north to find color.
Deerfied, MA has a huge number of old homes with people still living in them. I used this house as a prototype for the heroin’s rental in VERMONT ESCAPE
The entry of the Woodstock Inn, Woodstock, VT also used in VERMONT ESCAPE. Whenever my family decides to go to Hawaii for Christmas, I’m going to stay in this lovely inn.
This gorgeous color makes me smile. It’s also Vermont.
The Library in Boothbay Harobr, Maine was a prototype for one in ACT OF TRUST.
Are you nuts about Fall or does some other season make you crazy happy? Don’t these pictures make you want to schedule a fall vacation to New England as soon as possible? Love to hear from you.
