Burlington Vermont Foliage

Autumn in Burlington

Our home in Burlington has a beautiful maple tree in the front yard. I love the contrast between the tree’s yellow leaves and dark branches. In the right light, it almost looks like butterscotch and chocolate.

Most of northern Vermont and the higher elevations are past peak foliage. But it’s a different story along Lake Champlain, which stretches 120 miles from the Quebec border to Rutland County. Even though Burlington is in northern Vermont, the foliage here – and in other lakeside communities – turns later.

When I walked outside my front door this week and saw the beautiful maple tree with its yellow leaves, I knew what it meant. Foliage season is winding down, and like every year, it went by too fast.

    Love the yellow color.With your description I’m going to be looking for those round Lindor’s truffles that are in yellow.

    I can look into such canopy and just dream…. Fall is such a beautiful season here in VT, bitter sweet because it goes by so fast.

    One of my most vivid memories of the fall colors that I hung onto when I was living in the west was walking down Maple Avenue from campus in the fall, under the maple trees that lined the street. The sun was streaming through the brilliant colors. Ah, Burlington in the fall.
