Beautiful autumn colors in October.

Mainly deciduous trees and shrubs have now shown that the winter is beautiful. Everyone thinks their foliage breathtaking spectacle. A walk through the deciduous forest is great for the eye (all those colors!), Your nose (wonderfully crisp autumn air and the smell of mushrooms) and your ears (run by a crackling carpet of fallen leaves). The garden is the equally. With the right plants, it is there now a warm color opulence.
Many trees and shrubs that belong in our kind of climate, go into hibernation and shed their leaves. They get there first have many useful substances (mainly sugars) and store it as starch (carbohydrates) in their trunks, branches and roots. Sugar acts like antifreeze in their juices and protect from frost. The chlorophyll breaks down, especially red and yellow dyes come in its place. Moreover, various toxins in the leaves stuffed for disposal. All this together makes everyone fall back to an unparalleled flaming colors. The best is that after a sunny and warm autumn, a so-called ‘Indian Summer’.
