It goes without saying that autumn in New England is simply beautiful. But this year —perhaps because of the abundant rainfall or lack of high winds or delayed frost— is one of the most spectacular foliage seasons that I can remember. The blazing scarlet and brilliant orange maples, clear-gold birch and poplar, and technicolor ash trees are absolutely amazing in Southern Vermont and Northwestern Massachusetts this fall. My autumn planting schedule has been truly wild, but I promised myself some time in the air and I got it this past week. Clear, blue skies and peak autumn hues made for a stunning hour-long flight above the valley. Here’s a bit of what I saw, and couldn’t help but share: October in New England, from inside the sky . . .
