There is plenty of color to go around this year. Fall is in full swing and so is the in change of color of leaves.
Fall is Stephen Barefield's favorite season.
"It's just a nice time of year," says Barefield.
Barefiled and others in the area are noticing something a little different than in years past.
"It has really been great this year more than any other have had a lot of leaves fall and we've seen a lot of autumn color."
There are more orange, red and, yellow leaves hanging from trees.
"This year has been a really magnificent year for color change," says Steve Hotard.
Hotard of the LSU Ag Center says the conditions were just right to see vibrant colors during and before the season.
"We had a decent spring and we actually had rain in august so there was decent soil moisture."
Also, the perfect balance of temperature during the season allowed for color pigments in the leaves to come out.
"The combination of cool nights and warm days this creates the brilliant colors."
Hotard says we've reached the peak of this colorful change, and the temperatures reaching the freezing mark more often. This drop in temperatures will cause leaves to fall.
"Once it gets to freezing the leaves will fall off. We are getting close to the end of it," Hotard says.
While it's a pretty sight now it will soon be a problem for those raking up this colorful mess.
