Took an hour drive down to Eastern Johnson County today to see if any leaves were turning down south. Just a few sycamores had started to turn yellow brown, a few black gums had turned scarlet, some sugar maples and other varieties of hard maples, had only a tinge of color; and the dogwood is an off-red this year due to the dry hot summer. The sumac is not going to be very colorful this year; the Sassafras is disappointing too.

But, it is still way to early to tell how the overall color picture will be in fall 2011. The best color I saw was along AR 327 near Wayton on the return trip.
