This Is Why We Live Here

The past couple of weeks have been spectacular.* This has been one of the most astonishing, longest-lasting autumns I can recall. Every day brings new beauty.

Soon, of course, all the leaves will be underfoot. That’s the way it happens. Trees will be bare, and before we know it the snow will fly.

Before that happens, here’s a special gallery: Fall in Westport and Weston, 2021.

Bookmark this page. You’ll want to see it in mid-February, 2022.

*Not counting yesterday afternoon.
