Mountains of NC. Seeing some color on maples and a few other trees. Also seeing more and more leaves falling. It seems too early to me.

Almost all the leaves are off my apple trees; but they suffer from fire blight. We have so many invasive insects that can push an early color change or leaf fall.

As we were driving down the street this afternoon, my wife noticed the first touch of red on the edges of some leaves on a maple tree in a neighbor's yard.

I'm a fan of the locust tree. They drop their leaves earlier than most and when a chill autumn wind( or not so chill) blows and you see those yellow leaves fluttering and spinning down en masse its something. There's a stretch of road north of us along Route 61 called " Dark Water." It got its name from the tannins of the leaves turning the creeks dark. The Black Moshannon in Center County Pa means the same. Dark Water is along a valley with steep hills and those leaves will be flying turning the area golden.
Yellow is my favorite leaf color. Poplars, oaks, some maples, they have a mix of yellow and russet browns. When you walk along a woodland trail and everything is golden its like stepping into another world.

According to sources on the web, Iíve heard that the trees are starting to change colors earlier than usual in places like Colorado, specifically the mountain high country of Colorado; Iíve heard that the drought in Colorado is likely responsible for the colors coming early.

Hello, anyone?doesnít anybody care to share observations on fall foliageIt is my understanding that the trees in the inter mountain west have begun changing and in those areas some places(Colorado for example)the trees there are changing weeks ahead of schedule and in a few cases are already near peak conditions. Nothing to see yet in the greater Indianapolis metro area though, so I suppose I understand about the lack of comments or activity on this thread.
