I believe it is because the night time temperatures are moderated by the ocean breezes so the leaves do not have to go out in short blaze of color, but have an extended dying off period. The first frost happens usually in October on Campobello Island which is really late for the 45th parallel! Our garden is just beginning to bear some green beans!
I will post a few spiderweb kaleidoscopes for my last one of my summer season here in Lubec, Maine and Campobello Island, NB. There is an international border between the towns here, but it feels like one town as the services and amenities complement each other and we own property in both! I make my escape to another country nearly every day!
It is not too early to begin thinking about summer 2017! We are taking reservations for our artists retreat vacation rental in Lubec, Maine for summer 2017 now.
Water views, walk to beach and waterfront restaurants. Make your own artistic retreat, musical or painting, or join us in a plein air workshop. $500 for 5 nights, contact me! Great for SummerKeys students.
