Have you planned your fall foliage trip for next month, yet?
You could see scenes like this soon:
According to the National Park Service, The main fall leaf season is still more than a month away (mid to late October), but some early color is starting to develop on a few trees. Some dogwood trees have a reddish cast that will develop into brilliant reds later in October. Other species such as sourwood, red maple, witch hobble, sumac and blueberries are also beginning to sport a few red leaves, especially on trees and shrubs at higher elevation. Overall however, there's not much fall color to see yet -- just scattered trees here and there, and their colors are still just a hint of what they'll become in a few more weeks. Fall flowers such as asters, Joe-Pye-weed, jewelweed, ironweed, and golden rod are blooming now. And the colorful fruits of hearts-a-bustin' are splitting open.
