Leaf Peeping

Foliage Peaking On South Coast, Cape Cod!

If you are in New England at this time of year and are wishing to see foliage, you have no choice but to come to southeast Massachusetts. New Hampshire and Vermont were past-peak weeks ago. We are the only region that is peaking now.

I had business on the South Coast yesterday, and I took the opportunity to scout their foliage. What is theirs today will be ours next week. Cape Cod peaks through Halloween, and should still be somewhat spectacular (although maybe in a brown way) when the relatives show up for turkey later in the month of November. 

The picture above is Plympton farmland. The picture below is the East Middleboro 4-H building.

Heavy on the red, and a very well-placed tree.

We also have some yellow, if you desire.

This tree was in Lakeville, maybe east Taunton.

Below, we take it back to Plympton.

If you go off-Cape and head northwest into the boondocks of the South Coast and South Shore, you'll see some spectacular color. That color is creeping towards Bourne, and will be heading to Cape Cod afterwads.
