It seems like only a few short weeks ago that we were excitedly posting the first foliage report for Maine for 2011.
Oh, wait. It was only a few short weeks ago! Where did the leaves time go?
Just last week we were driving along I-295, admiring the beautiful fall foliage, and thinking it would be just another week and the colors would be at their peak. But in the blink of an eye (OK, in just a few days) it has all passed, and we’re now past peak in virtually the entire state.
Of course, there are still isolated spots with nice color, but the sense that everywhere you turn is filled with beautiful color is already gone. Sigh.
Hence, we are moving on, and posted about the less well-known November activities in Freeport earlier this week.
And, moving on from there, we will be posting more in coming weeks about Freeport’s annual Sparkle Weekend, with its parades, sales, Christmas lights, and more, followed by all the holiday activities and the giant L.L. Bean New Years Celebration (don’t forget, 2012 is a leap year!).
