New England’s Fall Colors, 2021 Edition

October 25, 2021 1 comment

And here we are again in my favorite season – fall. It is still warm enough to enjoy the outdoors lightly clothed; running the air conditioning is no longer a necessity to survive indoors. And the colors, the abundance of colors – every season has its beauty, but fall offers the most profound expression of it.

This 2021 fall season is interesting (it is not over yet). It is still continuously warm, and so the leaves are still mostly green – it is occasional branches and individual leaves which all of a sudden offer a full brilliant display of red, golden, and orange. In this traditional New England fall post, I usually share pictures from my neighborhood walks, a tiny circle of two streets next to the house. Yesterday we wanted to get out of the house, and so we took about an hour drive to New Milford up north in Connecticut to visit Lover’s Leap State Park. We spent there about an hour, slowly walking the narrow path covered with fallen leaves, and admiring, or rather indulging, on absolute silence, crisp fall air, and views of the Housatonic River.

Absolute silence is a rare treasure – somehow, in the middle of the park you are far enough from the road, and maybe we just got lucky, but it was really an amazing feeling – not being disturbed by anything. It is hard to convey the silence and the smell of the autumn leaves through the words – so I have pictures for you – many, many pictures. Yes, pictures also don’t do justice to the perfect fall day outdoors but let me at least try…

Without further ado, here they are for your viewing enjoyment:

Happy Thanksgiving!

I want to take a moment and wish you all Happy Thanksgiving! Even if you don’t live in US, there are so many things we can be thankful for – you can always raise a glass for that. And for those who are celebrating, all of you who are busy prepping, cooking, getting the tables ready, opening wines, greeting the family and friends – I wish you all great tasting turkey, great wines, and most importantly – great time with families and friends.

Even few days ago, the Fall was still beautiful here in Connecticut. Instead of sharing food pictures with you today, I decided to share again sunshine and beauty. Enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving! Cheers!
