Fall colors!





Why leaves change color in the fall? This color is made in the fall, from food trapped in the leaves. As summer ends and autumn comes, the days get shorter and shorter.... Many plants discontinue making food in the fall. The chlorophyll "green coloring matter" goes away. We can see red and yellow colors. It is the combination of all these things that make great pleasure colors, we enjoy seeing in the fall.
