Autumn – the season between summer and winter comprising in the northern hemisphere usually the months of September, October, and November or as a reckoned astronomically extending from September equinox to the December solstice – called also fall.
Pumpkins in the cornfields
Gold among the brown
Leaves of rust and scarlet
Trembling slowly down
Birds that travel southward
Lovely time to play
Nothing is as pleasant
As an autumn day
Is Autumn (fall) your favorite season?
So, many people love this time of year (myself included)
for so many reasons…from the changing colors to the cooler temperatures and
yes…even the shorter days…but does Autumn always begin with the leaves changing
and falling from the trees? In this blog post we will celebrate the beginning of Autumn…by taking a look at the different changes that occur and how they differ from one area to the next. We will also examine why some areas see these changes more then others as well as share some craft and recipe ideas.
In many regions of North America,the landscape shows an explosion of vibrant colors of red,yellow and orange. The leaves begin to drop off the trees,providing endless hours of leaf jumping fun for kids(and kids at heart) this also means the leaf raking season begins as well. However,there are some areas that don’t get to experience the magnificent beauty of these changing colors or at best a small show. Why, you may ask? Well, there are a few different reasons among them are temperature,precipitation,soil moisture and also,the species of the trees in the area-notable species are maple,aspen,oak and gum-they seem to produce a lovely performance of these wonderful colors annually in North America. However,the main agent is light or actually lack of it. The amount of daylight relates to the timing of the autumnal equinox . As the autumn days grow shorter,the reduced light triggers chemical changes in deciduous plants causing a corky wall to form between the twig and the leaf stalk.
