I know that in the fall thousands of people head to New England to Leaf Peep. Well, that's fine and wonderful and yes, the scenery can be stunning.
Being the contrarian I am, I find spring and the peeping leaves to be far better. First of all, the colors are so much brighter - all brand new and light green (and pink and other colors). Second, it's spring, with all the hope and joy that brings, particularly after the dull of winter.
How can you not love this time, when leaves peep out of their protective coverings and emerge to cover the trees and bushes with beautiful color?
