This has been the most beautiful fall I can remember here in western Maine. The colors have been vivid with startling shades from brilliant red to brightest gold.
But now the color has peaked and passed; our world has shifted to gold and yellows with bare branches beginning to show as the wind takes the leaves.
|The green is copper beach, it will turn late to a brassy copper.|
I can truly say that fall has passed and the first indications of winter are settling in. Today the high temperature was 41 degrees and snow has been predicted for the higher elevations.
This is the Maine I love: a place of four seasons; and the fall and winter are my favorite.
