Maple Trees In Autumn
Saturday, October 24, 2020
There's nothing so beautiful as the maple trees turning color.
The sugar maple tree in a New England Autumn is the most colorful tree of all.
The reds, oranges, and yellows mixed together are beautiful.
The three weeks of color are the crowning touch of the season for me.
In the Spring they produce the maple sap used to make maple syrup and in the fall, they bring brilliant colors.
Maple trees are the royals of the fall foliage world in North America. Tourists, who are dubbed "leaf peepers," sometimes drive hundreds of miles to locations such as the White Mountains of New Hampshire to witness the magnificent fall foliage displays. Different types of maples display brilliant yellow, red, orange, or burgundy fall colors, and the color of an individual tree can sometimes vary from year to year.
