This vibrant taper candle with leaves pattern is a part of our autumn collection to celebrate one of the first changes to occur as the seasons change from summer to autumn; the leaves turning into fiery tones making trees look like sunsets before falling and lining the ground like warm blanket.
This taper candle is a fantastic gift for friends to remind them of the childlike wonder you experienced when kicking, stomping, and jumping into piles of crunchy, fallen leaves. It will make a thoughtful gesture to not only honour those memories but also a reminder to create wonderful new memories as the seasons return every year.
The colour-changing of the leaves is surely one of the most magical aspects of autumn, but what’s more awesome is knowing the process of this change and how that magic happens…
‘(…)For years, scientists have worked to understand the changes that occur in trees and shrubs during autumn. Although we don’t know all the details, we do know enough to explain the basics to help you enjoy nature’s multi-coloured display. Three factors influence autumn leaf colour: leaf pigments, length of night weather’(…).
For instance ‘(…)During the growing season, chlorophyll is continually produced and broken down and leaves appear green. As night length increases in the autumn, chlorophyll production slows down and then stops and eventually all the chlorophyll is destroyed. The carotenoids and anthocyanin that are present in the leaf are then unmasked and show their colours (…)’.
