At this time of year, the leaves on the trees in my area seem to change color overnight. The brilliant yellow, orange, and red leaves are a pleasure to see. Not surprisingly, many people travel to the northeastern part of the United States to go leaf-peeping. Living here in New York City, I only have to walk outside to see the changing leaves. In fact, I have a mature sugar maple in my neighborhood that inspires me with its yellow-orange symphony of leaves. Today, my post is all about trees and why their leaves change color in the fall.

September's Birthflower: The Magnificent Morning Glory

Photo via http://ow.ly/VcRo30eXhwG

The morning glory is one of my favorite flowers because they are delicate and hardy at the same time. I have a small, white trellis on my patio that is just teeming with morning glories. I especially love the blues and pinks. I like to look out the window at them as I'm sipping my morning coffee. I planted a handful of morning glory seeds last spring, and it wasn't long before I noticed the vines racing to the top of the trellis! I'm so glad September has such a remarkable birth flower.

Back to school time is fast approaching, and students are getting excited. I love seeing the notebooks, folders, and colorful backpacks on display in stores: It reminds me of when I shopped for my own school supplies at the local drugstore. But for parents planning a move to New York City, sending the kids off to school can be a stressful proposition, since there are so many different schools all over the city to choose from. Like anywhere else, people who move here often consider the quality of the local schools when deciding on where they want to live, so to help out those of you who might soon be my neighbors in the Big Apple, I've put together a list of some of the best public, private and specialty schools in the city.
