It is becoming very obvious that summer is coming to a close. We still have 80 degree days but the quality of the light is changing as it does coming into autumn. The evening temperatures are dropping into the high 40's and it is taking a little longer to warm up in the morning.

The leaves on the less mature trees are starting to turn. Just took a drive out along the Kennebec River and you can see the reds and oranges starting to show up interspersed with the still green leaves of the more mature trees.

Keeping in mind that peak foliage in Maine is still about a month away, it is time to think about planning a getaway to enjoy the crisp fall days. Maine foliage is beautiful but it is over quickly once the colder winds and rains blow through in the waning days of October.
