Fall in New Hampshire

Some of my Internet friends asked for a virtual Leaf Peeping tour from my area. Unfortunately it's been a warm Fall (no frost yet!) and we've had some heavy thunderstorms. The red swamp maples are long gone by and the sugar maples are turning gradually and promptly losing their leaves. The best color I could find was at my two favorite local farm stands.

Tenny Farm had a goodly amount of pumpkins and mums, but the good apples (Northern Spy) are not in yet.

Cauncy Farm had a disappointing year for pumpkins. Usually this field is piled high with them. However their crop of beautiful sunflowers was just great over the summer.

I went out behind Antrim's Town Hall, hoping for some great color, but just had to contend with the town ducks, who were certain I had come just to feed them.

The Town Mill Pond did have a tree or two showing the almost glowing orange/yellow color I really enjoy.


A trip to my favorite pic-nic place, Beards Brook, found a bit more color, but nothing like what it has been in past years.


By the time I got to Powder Mill Pond the rain clouds were starting to roll back in and a chilly breeze had sprung up.

Sorry Ladies, this seems the best I can do for Fall Foliage in this neck of the woods this year.

  1. Judith thank you so much for the fall color tour! There is enough of a color change for me to feel fall in the air. We are still having tropical weather in New Orleans. I am looking forward to cooler tempatures.
