Vibrant bright reds are amongst some of the colours starting to show as mother nature changes seasons. The Autumn Equinox is upon us, also called the September equinox or fall equinox. September 22nd marks the date of the start of fall in the Northern Hemisphere and spring in the Southern Hemisphere. During the autumnal equinox, the sun shines directly on the equator, and the northern and southern hemispheres get the same amount of rays. Every six months, once in March and again in September, an equinox splits Earth’s day almost in half, giving us about 12 hours of daylight and 12 of night. /SANDRA JAMES
