New England Foliage

I don’t know about other Connecticut residents, but one of the things I love about living here is it was home to Mark Twain, whose observations about nature and life are spot on. One of my favorite Twain quotes is “Climate is what we expect. Weather is what we get. If you don’t like the weather in New England, just wait a few minutes.” I think this is part of the reason I no longer consult Weather.com. I’ll leave that to my guy friends and husband. We tend to complain a lot about the weather in Connecticut, but we’re treated to two beautiful displays of foliage every year in spring and fall.

  1. Happy to be one of your guy friends who checks the weather forecast for you. The forecast is not always right, but it often is.

  2. lovely photos – fall color is amazing here in the midwest… as for checking weather.com, it is the backup plan.. one can always sense the conditions. I have lived in the midwest for 20+ years and weather is a common complaint – especially in the winter.. but each season is a gift – fall color, spring color, summer color, and winter black and white… it’s all in the perspective I bring to what I see… have a wonderful weekend. may you see wonderful things in your travels.
