Hot Hole Pond

It is mid-October already! The leaves are falling off the trees pretty quickly. This year’s foliage was not its usual splendor. The weather has been too warm and many of the leaves appear to have some sort of blight. The leaves start to turn – then get black spots or look burned and fall off the tree.

A little over a week ago – I went up north with my parents and McKenzie the dog. It was beautiful – though not very colorful. We saw more color in Concord at Hot Hole Pond.

I will be enjoying whatever color comes our way. November is right around the corner and that is usually such a colorless-gray month. It makes you (or at least makes me) wish for snow – to put some color (even white is an improvement) out there.

It will be interesting to see if we will get slammed with snow again this year – or have a mild year. I am guessing that we will have a milder winter with much less snow. We will see! 🙂


  1. Debbie, I read today’s blog (oct 30th), scrolled back a few and found that you did get your wish for Oct snow! Ha! Our fall colors are beautiful this year- leaves aren’t falling so much that we have to rake yet but next week will probably be different. Tell everyone I said hello. Love, Kathy
