Fall here in Missouri

So as my oldest son and I took a trip today to Jefferson City, Missouri, I took the opportunity to keep a watchful eye on the colors of the trees. Unfortunately, they appeared to lack the same color as the trees back home which got me me to wondering lately, what affects the color in leaves?

While I did find a few articles explaining the importance of moisture in the spring and dryness during the summer, I feel that I my work here is not done and therefore, I will continue this search tomorrow.Having been gone nearly half the day, I feel the need to rest until a new day.

Meanwhile, here is the view of our neighborhood last fall. As my kids are aware of, I take a picture of the tree on the left every year since it usually has amazing color but last year, I decided to contrast the tree with the one in our front yard.
