Mid-October Colors at My Farm

Here in the Northeast, the plants and trees continue to show off their gorgeous fall colors.

This time of year, because of the changes in temperature and length of daylight, the leaves stop their food-making process. When this happens, the chlorophyll breaks down and the green color disappears, making way for all the shades of autumn. Here at my Bedford, New York farm, we're still waiting for a hard frost, but the colors across the landscape are beautiful - various shades of orange, yellow, brown, red, and evergreen.

Enjoy these photos, and be sure to check out my Instagram page @MarthaStewart48 to see what fall activity I did with my granddaughter this past weekend.
