Happy October

I sat on the porch this afternoon seeing this red maple and the glistening waters beyond and had to share it with you. 😀 We are in full color and soon, they will be all gone. Hope you have a wonderful October

Fall Foliage 2011 has arrived

As you can see, one of the red maples we have here is turning nicely. There is still green on the leaves but it won-t be long before we have full color. Our birch trees, which we have many, are turning yellow and already falling. First leaf clean up should be gin by next week.

Of course, as we sit down in the valley a bit, there is less color then th higher elevations of Johnson Mtn. and near the border.

Summer 2011 is over

After the storms, the lake water rose. We kept the dock attached hoping it would go down again, which it did but alas, it came back up. SO today, Steve took the dock out.

The leaves have already begun to change and soon the snow will fly ❗
SO, I guess summer is over 🙁

Autumn must end

I took these images this morning and I think they may be the last possible shots of the fall colors for this year.This first one is of Moose Point Tavern.

They are no longer open and yet still shows a beautiful presence on the lake.

This second one was taken from our yard-pond 😆 of Hog Island and the mountains beyond. As you can see, the rains we had a couple weeks ago, cause the lake water to rise significantly.

Now I am ready for the leaves to be gone and the snow to fall 🙂
Have a great day to all ❗

Winter is on its way

I think this image says it all ❗

The colors are almost gone, the leaves are falling, the skies are gray (sounds like a song I know 😉 ) but there is still so much beauty around here. When the sun did peak out, it was gorgeous.

But alas, fall must come to an end and winter is to come. Get ready to start singing my “let it snow” song ❗

It is getting cold out

Yes, that is a nice layer of fog over the lake. We cannot even see beyond the dock. It is about 40 degrees this morning but the sun is trying to come up so the fog is lifting.
It will not be long before the leaves all change, then fall and then here comes the snow 🙂

Fall 2010 has begun

Our red maples have begun to turn here at Cozy Cove and yet, I think there is definitely more evidence of autumn on Johnson Mountain as well as in Dennistown. (even though both are only about 6 miles from town, both are at a bit higher elevation) Leaf peepers should be arriving soon 🙂

Could autumn be on it-s way

A beautiful morning today as you can see from the webcam shot from 9am.

And it only got better. It is almost hot out except the breeze off the lake is wonderful. Now mind you it is still August but I am also seeing leaves falling off the trees today 🙁 I have noticed some color changes in the higher elevations but it is just too soon to think about fall ❗
