    I was just wondering if anybody could give some reports of the fall colors for their areas.

    Thanks, but I still like to hear other people's reports. I relied on the Weather Channel's report last year and my fall trip was filled with brown (not yellow, orange or red) leaves.

    We hit peak here in Maine this week. Had rain and wind last night, though, which means that many more leaves are making their way groundward. The colors have been very vibrant, though- makes me really appreciate where I live.

    Last week was beautiful here in Ashland Ohio. A LOT of oranges, golds, and reds. The cold coupled with rain and wind this week seem to have taken their toll though, at least in this area.
    I can honestly say that it was the prettiest I've ever seen the fall season be in my eight years here. I have planned to videotape it this week but hadn't realized it would be so short lived. I still might. I do love the way all the colors look being swept along the streets and sidewalks. Yesterday would have been a perfect time to have a camera. I ran to the store and in the parking across from me was a horse and buggy tied to an old wood post, the wind swirling the fall leaves all around it. (we have a lot of Amish here)
    Now you made me want to take a walk, crunching along! [​IMG]

    Greg, I miss the vibrant falls of Connecticut. We get color changes here in Georgia but it's usually a tinge of yellow, maybe some orange and then brown. I can look out my front windows from here and have to strain to see any color change at all and then it's tips of leaves.... Georgia has very acidic soil and it's the sugar in the leaves that produces the bright colors. The brighter the red or purples, the more sugar left in the leaves when the slow down began.

    Seems like it happens overnight!

    We were in Boston last weekend and even from one day to the next the colors changed dramatically.

    Here in Michigan looking out my window I can still see lots of green, but also some yellows/oranges. It's pretty cold and rainy here today so I'm sure I'm not getting the full effect.

    The color fall in my area is now peaking. I saw lot of trees are red, they are very bright. Because there was no rain for a long time nearly a month last month Septmeber. Not really much of rain till only last Friday, it rain and windy lot cause leaves falling down, BUT, I still can see plenty of beautiful leaves on trees, of course, reds are still on trees.

    Later today, after church, I will going to Kensington Park near Brighton, (it is more close to Milford) where my parents living. I Love to see color leaves at Kensington Park, because it have lot of lakes with forest around, and they are nature. I love it because of God's creation.

    This week, lot of leaves are going to falling on the ground fast. By the next week, most leaves will be the ground for sure. :(

    Oh well, the time goes past..... as the winter is at the corner.

    By the way, I like to tell you what I saw yesterday(Saturday). While I driving in the rain and windy. I drove across train on the way to my apt. I caught two HUGE trees are filled with brilliant and bright REDS!!! :cool: Not only huge tree with red, also, it beside with big tree filled with ORANGE!!!

    In Christ
    Rev. 22:20 -Amen!

    Lots of yellow and orange here, as well as a few bright reds here and there! Will probably peak in a week or two.
