And the leaves are tinged by the shortening days (Red 12)

Here in the flatlands of Southern California, the seasons are most often signaled by the calendar, rather than the weather. But for anyone with a liquid amber tree this is not the case, for the leaves begin to turn as soon as the days begin to shorten.

Sure, the weather can be hot or cold, clear or cloudy, wet or dry, but the red-tinged leaves tell the story: fall is here.

All one need do is read the subtle signs.
