Fake Fall

It's all about window dressing.
The news around here is that it's going to be a fall of 'hot colors'. Locals say the blame can be laid at the foot of a cool summer. Apparently they didn't experience the summer that I lived through recently. My retrospective would be this this guy 'survived' a pretty dry and relatively warm summer in these parts. Fall colors are reaching their peak around the southern Maine locale in the next week or so. At least that's the way my eyes are seeing it. This month brings lots of cruise ships unloading passengers into buses heading off to view the fall fireworks. Rain and fog will only heighten their viewing pleasure.
I say enjoy!
Captured here are 'fake colors' harboring in a store window advertising autumn fashions.

  1. I've already seen some mighty nice fall colors in images sent to me by friends up in the Catskills.

  2. I'm glad that you explained your photo because I was wondering…Timing peak fall colors is tricky. We were also told by those who know that our fall should be glorious. So far it's just been chilly and rainy and gray! The maples already have lost their leaves and the rest of the trees are green or bare.

  5. Fake fall--great title for your photo, Birdman. Here in my Portland, I noticed yesterday that some of the trees alongside the north side of West Burnside near the bridge look strange--way too many dry and brown leaves. I wonder if they will still be able to make themselves the wonderful fall colors of old. I won't be in town to find out unless it happens after I get back from my trip and ride to work again on 10/20.

  6. I say enjoy also Birdman, the seasons move along so quickly we should appreciate them while they are here. Only not summer, it's too hot :)

  12. I must say, I don't miss the cruise ships, though I know they're great for Portland's economy & fun for the folks who are on them. Our harbor up here is too narrow for any big ones.
