The stressed tress have already started turning, and as you look up to the treetops on the hillsides, there are a few reds, oranges and yellows to see, as well as a dulling of the green leaves, which is a sign that the chlorophyll is shutting down.
The Crab Apples are ripened and falling from the trees as well.
But summer is still here and summer's bounty can still be found:
As far as the foliage season goes, I'd say it is looking to be shaping up for another stellar year. I'm having a good feeling about this. I think as long as we don't get any unwelcomed weather events in September, that it's going to be another beautiful foliage season. I'm also thinking that the end of September should be the peak time for the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.
So Mother Nature.......bring it on!!!!!
