PROVIDENCE, RI (WPRI) - Autumn is just beginning – but the leaves on the treesseem to be turning color a little earlier than usual.
Right now there are mostly reds and some yellows; according toProfessor Keith Killingbeck of URI's Department of BiologicalSciences, this early color change is normal.
Professor Killingbeck says the change in color is partiallybecause we had so much rain in the early and middle growing seasonthat the plants have gotten a lot of moisture.
