Autuman Leaves

It is going to be beautiful here very soon. The mountains of North Carolina is in there peak right now. The foothills will be next, then us here in the Piedmont of North Carolina. There are reasons the leaves are turning. I always just enjoy the season, But I have found out why they turn.                                          We all know that the green in leaves is Chlorophyll. That is what photosynthesizes into food for the plant to grow.  There is also Carthaginians that is not visible until the weather changes   to short days and cooler temperatures.  That causes the photosynthesis stops and the sugars in the leaves turn color and is reviled.
