Last fall was our first New England fall in nine years. I wish I could say that I went out and got lots of pictures around the area of the famous fall foliage, but I can't say that because I didn't do it. I did, however, photograph the foliage around our new yard, and it didn't disappoint.
This was at the beginning of October when the leaves were starting to turn. There was a weird storm cloud/sun-fighting-through kind of a thing going on and it cast a dramatic, moody light on everything.
I took these pictures one morning because I liked how the rising sun illuminated the leaves of the (still green) tree from below.
A little further into October...
I think some of the colors were a little more muted last fall (but still lovely).
The following pictures are from the side yard on the garage side of the house. These colors certainly weren't muted! We'd recently had rain and then it cleared up and the colors were brilliant! (Reason #142 to love rain!)
This is a pretty area of the side and back yard that isn't fenced in. It reminds me of a little forest glen.
I was very happy with the fall foliage in our new yard. I'm looking forward to experiencing it again in the not-too-distant future!
