And so it begins, the symphony of colors splashing across Litchfield County

New Milford CT Fall FoliageAnd so it begins, the symphony of colors splashing across the Litchfield County, Connecticut countryside against the backdrop of our ever changing skies. Fall is my most favorite time of year, the cooler days, the crisp evenings and of course the eye candy in every direction as the leaves begin their "Dance of Fall" right before my very eyes. It is impossible for one to remain unaffected by the awesome work of nature, the spectacular vistas that we live in the middle of.

The leaves have begun their dance, you can see the green giving way to hints of color here and there, anticipation mounts with each passing day. Is it peak? Is it time? Will today be the day that I drive down the road and see that fantastic sugar maple has decided to burst forth in the most amazing colors possible. It is truly a symphony of colors, filling your eyes and mind with such wonder and amazement. Yes, I do love fall.

According to the Connecticut DEP, our peak fall foliage will run from October 11th through November 13th, 2011. And just to show you I am right about Litchfield County in Connecticut does have some of the most spectacular viewing around, Yankee Magazine voted Kent, CT as the number one leaf peeping site this year! Take a ride up Route 7 or Rt 202 in Litchfield County, take a few detours on some of our wonderful country roads, let your eyes fill up with the majesty of the Symphony of Colors!

How beautiful this time of year must be in Litchfield County.

I absolutely LOVE living in Florida but must admit the cool Fall days with their constantly changing colors are the one thing I miss most.

So pretty.  We are still in the middle of full summer green.  It will be another month before we start to turn I bet.

Andrea, you guys are getting some beautiful colors already.  The trees have just begun to change here in my end of the State.

Andrea, We have not got any color like you do yet, and I am not a great photographer like you either.  I will go out to take some pictures to "show off" once they become colorful. ;)

What a handsome community to be a part of.  I grew up on a road that my aged neighbors great grandfather planted with maple trees.  Of course 100 years later I enjoyed both the colorama that these towering trees would produce, as well as piling and hiding in the leaves before moving them to the compost pile. 

We also have a Kent County right near us (Grand Rapids).  But I think the Connecticut one has us hands-down on colors!

Things are just starting to turn a little here, not much at all. The pictures of your area are beautiful.

Andrea, there were some of the maples at the golf course already starting to turn a brilliant red. The rest of the trees still holding on to their green
