My Mum and her sister once flew across the Atlantic for a tour of “The Spectacular Colours of New England in the Fall”. They really enjoyed it, but it’s a shame that Covid has prevented them from getting out and fully experiencing the particularly vivid palette on display here this year. Heck, even my journey home from work up the Scott Hall Road has me tempted to stop and try to capture the colourful show there in a photograph. Apparently, the sunny spells in spring and September, combined with some nurturing dampness in the summer, have created ideal conditions for this phenomenon. If you can, get out and drink it all in on sunny days like today and before the clocks go back.
