The autumn grounds are particularly spectacular in late September and early October when the trees and shrubs are in peak foliage. The maple and birch trees are aglow with red, orange, and yellow leaves. The gardens have changed colors, too, with the autumn perennials, the wildflowers, and the still blooming hydrangeas and annuals. The views from the balconies show the green mountains of summer transformed and lit up in color, and a leaf carpet adorns the ground everywhere. Visitors come from all over the world to experience Fall Foliage in Vermont.
