Experts Say Changing Colors Began Later Than Usual

SILVERTHORNE, Colo. (CBS4) – It’s a sure sign of fall — leaves in the high country are already starting to turn.

Gardening experts say while it might seem a bit early, the changing colors began later than usual.

“The aspens budded out much later than they typically would because of our late winter. In fact, we had trees here that didn’t bud out until the middle of July,” Kristin Rizzardi with the Neils Lunceford Garden Center said.

Tree experts say the rest of the color change depends on how much rain falls in the high country over the next couple of weeks.
