In deep deciduous woods at the base of the Blue Wall, chlorophyll is working overtime, capturing sunlight streaming to Earth as Earth increasingly tilts towards winter. Little light reaches the ground in these deep shady woods, but chlorophyll, molecule by molecule, is beginning to fade away.  Molecule by molecule, carotenoids begin to show, painting interior leaves in shades of apricot, salmon, and rusty pink. Leaf by leaf, they’ll soon drift down, and light, finally, will reach forest floor. ~K
