Sciencemadesimple at Concordia University have a very clear explanation of the chemistry involved.

Just search for "leaves autumn sugar colour".

Very vivid, in a blaze of pinks and yellows.

In fact, we are just back from Autumn in Australia, so the change in the seasons is a bit of a visual shock.

Many thanks for taking time to post, Walls.
