Don’t put off checking out autumn’s paintbrush.
The hot, dry summer is expected to make for an earlier, albeit perhaps duller, fall landscape.
“From what I’ve heard, the color may be muted compared to most years and maybe shortened because of the drought,” Richard Beckort of Purdue Extension Jackson County said.
“But this recent rain has helped bring that fall color out,” he added. “It’s a little early, but spring was also a little early, and I think that’s just continuing.”
