I’ll just come right out and say it. Fall was a little blah in Middle Tennessee this year. I’ve lived here 59 years and I can’t remember such a colorless autumn, especially right in our own neighborhood. Our maple trees never did get any color. Their leaves stayed green, then turned brown and crinkly, and then fell to the ground. The two trees that I usually love to photograph every year in our neighborhood due to their magnificent orange, yellow, and red colors, were just, well, dull this year. No color at all. I heard on the news that if you hoped to see any autumnal colors in Tennessee this year that you would need to drive to East Tennessee, near the mountains.
Hubby and I went to our favorite state park a couple of weeks ago. There was very little color, when compared to previous years, although you might not think that from these photos because when we did come across the handful of trees that did have color, I stopped and took pictures. We only saw one tree which had red in it (or a few red branches I should say), a few trees with yellow leaves, but mostly just green and browns.
I also heard on the news that we only had three fall-like days here. It seemed to go from summer to winter temperature-wise.
Still, I love fall and it’s always been my favorite time of the year.
How have the fall colors been in your area this year?
