Dear Friends & Guests,
Yes, summer is winding down here in Maine. But the promise of Indian summer whispers in the wind. I can see it in the splotch or two of color across the lake, and smell it in the cool of the evening. Foliage season, that ephemeral time of year when the trees simply explode with color, shall soon be upon us.
The truth of the matter is, fall creeps slowly through Maine. It starts in late August with a single tree here and there signaling the cacophony of brilliant reds, yellows, and oranges soon to paint the countryside. Then, over the next several weeks, a flush of color bursts onto the scene. Long about late September you feel the full thrust of the season, but peak foliage generally occurs around Columbus Day. Though the color may wane a bit after the holiday weekend, the trees don’t instantly drop their leaves. Rather, it’s a transition from the brilliant fireworks of October to the pastels that linger long into November.
All of which is to say, the next few months are perhaps the most beautiful here at the Wolf Cove Inn. Come visit us and let us introduce you to the gorgeous show Mother Nature puts on in autumn.
Your Innkeeper, Sue
