Autumn was late by about two weeks. Though late, it arrived and wasn’t bad, all things considered. As a result, the peak foliage was also two weeks late. That was just a couple of days ago, when normally our trees are half stripped of leaves.
Today, the “fall” part of Fall occurred. What normally takes a couple of weeks, took a few hours. We took Bonnie to the groomer at 10:30 in the morning and the trees were glorious.
It’s a half hour drive from our house to the groomer. A slow crawl down Route 16, through Milford. Which, like Uxbridge, is doing late season roadwork. They have police misdirecting traffic. It makes everything worse.
By one in the afternoon, when we went to pick Bonnie up, most of the trees went almost bare.
These are the pictures I took the day before yesterday. It was the last best day of this year’s Autumn foliage.
It’ll be another year before it comes round again. If only it could have lasted longer.
