Month of September


Fall is almost here.  The birds will soon fly south for the winter.  Time to put up those bird feeders if you live down south that is.  The children will go back to school.  Families will take that last weekend get-away before the cold sets in.  Labor Day weekend vacation is that last cookout. September is the time to put away those "white shoes".  Thanksgiving will be here before you know it.  So put those summer clothes in the back of the closet and pull out your favorite sweater and sweats. Summer will be over soon.  Actually, it will be Autumn or Fall September 22, 2022.

The morning was a bright September morning; The earth was beautiful as a newborn; There was nameless splendor everywhere, that wild exhilaration in the air, which made the passers in the city street congratulate each other as they met.  Source: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The green color of forest, field and garden is caused by leaves.  They are the dress of trees and other plants.  They are far more important than dress, however. The foods by which the plant lives and grows are made in the leaves.  All the food eaten by human beings and other animals can be traced back to plants and the green leaf.  Even our bacon and eggs start with plants, for pigs and chickens live on plant food.  Without green leaves, there would be no animal life on earth.

                                                                                                                            Why Leaves change Color and Fall


In the autumn, leaves turn from green to brilliant shades of scarlet, gold, orange, and purple. Then they finally fall to the ground.  It is not a season of dying: the tree or shrub is preparing for winter.  In late summer, as the growing period slows down, a corky layer of cells forms at the base of the leafstalk where it joins the stem.  This corky layer is called the separation layer.  It does not pass through the woody fibers that connect the leafstalk with the stem.  These fibers hold the leaf in place until frost or wind tears it free. After the leaf has fallen, the scar where it is attached to the stem is sealed and protected by the separation layer. As the separation layer forms, the manufacture of food materials within the leaves slows down.  The cells and veins in the leaf become clogged.  No more chlorophyll is produced, and the green color disappears.  Other colors were present in the leaf, but they were hidden by the stronger green.  Now they appear in all their splendor. All leaves contain yellow pigments called carotene and xanthophyll.  The yellow pigments are formed in the protoplasm of the leaf cells.  The reds and purples are due to pigments called anthocyanins.  They are formed in cell sap that is rich in sugar.  Sugar maples, oaks and sumacs have the most brilliant scarlet and purple colors.  To develop such high color, they must be exposed to sunlight. Sugar maples that are heavily shaded by larger trees do not become red and show only yellow coloring.

Frost is usually given credit for autumn color, but actually a particular temperature has little effect on it.  A combination of favorable weather is required.  Red pigments are formed in the sunlight in leaves that have stored sugar.  Cloudy, rainy weather or a very hot, dry summer prevents the pigments from developing.  If warm days are followed by warm nights, the sugars drain out of the leaves and into the woody portions of the plant. Ideal conditions are bright, sunny days followed by cool nights.

Frost is chiefly responsible for freeing the leaves from the twigs.  On a cold, frosty night ice crystals form in the separation layer and break the woody fibers that hold the leaf in place.  Then when the ice melts in the morning sun, the leaves flutter in a gold and scarlet shower to the ground.  In some oaks the separation layer does not develop fully, and the leaves remain on the tree all winter.

The wise gardener does not burn fallen leaves but adds them to the compost pile.  Rotted leaves (leaf mold) are a valuable soil conditioner.

Virtually every living thing is affected by the seasons.  Farmers plant and harvest their crops in the warm months and mend fences and tend their livestock and machinery in the winter. As the seasons change, people wear heavier or lighter clothing and eat different foods. The seasons are still known as the names that dimly reveal people's primitive feelings about them.  Winter is an old Germanic word meaning "time of water" --of rain and snow.  Spring refers to the spring forth of living things.  The original meanings of summer and winter are lost.  People in the United States, however, generally call autumn by its alternative name, fall, fall of the leaf.
