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.

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.
