Weather: Sunny, warm temperature, dry humidity.
Summer is almost over and is shown by the color change in leaves, plants dying, and leaves falling. The grass is also dry because of a lack of rain and a large amount of sun.

I noticed a big red bird eating out of my bird feeder and then a squirrel tried getting up to it, but then fell off the pole. The plants in my back yard still had flowers on them from this summer, but they looked really dried out. My grass was cut, so it was short. But there was already a few leaves on the ground.

I observed that there were absolutely no clouds in the sky; in the shade it is a bit chillier. The grass was still wet in the shade and i could hear younger kids yelling in the background.

Grass in our community may begin to weaken and die for a number of reasons: pest damage, excessive or insufficient sun exposure, water, and/or fertilizer.
I made a general observation of a certain areas in my community where too much or not enough sun exposure is affecting those areas. I also observed the park in St. Anthony, there was not enough sun light exposure and I noticed the grass was turning brown. (The reason for the discoloring of the grass is the lack of sun light in that specific area.)
The sun gives off radiation that carries healthy nutrients to plants. The leaves on the plants absorb the nutrients and turn them into energy; the plants use this energy to grow. By not having the sun light the grass will not grow healthy and die.
