The colors are beginning to change here in New Jersey, but right around our area, it is still very green. When I look across the lake from our deck, the hill on the other side is almost entirely green now. As I sit here typing on my laptop looking out the windows on the opposite side of our cabin with a cool breeze blowing on me, it is as if I am sitting under trees though inside.
We have a Black Walnut outside my window that has been dropping walnuts for a while now. The acorn trees are dropping acorns in large numbers this year. Whether the quantity of acorns can be used to predict harsh winter weather or not, I do not know, I tend to think it happens in cycles....but I do know the squirrels are happy! Each morning at a certain time the pounding of the acorns on the roof increases as they are busy eating in the treetops.
Yes, Fall in the Northeast is a beautiful season, we hope you are enjoying it, and if you are ever passing through our State, take time to enjoy New Jersey's colorful fall foliage!
