Florida’s Autumn Colors Ablaze
OK, so this scene does not feature any of nature's traditional autumn colors...or any sign that fall has arrived on Florida's delightful Gulf Coast. But, the evening IS cooler by ten degrees and there's a light breeze. Delightful. Yes, that's the word to describe our small corner of the world. Is it any wonder why I thoroughly enjoy your posts from New England like John's from Newtown, Pennsylvania, Lori and her Skoog Farm Journal from Western New York State (and your kitchen fireplace), Sunny at Barnyards and Barnacles in Massachusetts, Brattcat living in Brattleboro, Vermont and Don and Krise calling Olympia, Washington home. Even the high desert of Santa Fe is seeing the change in temperature and colors in the sky and trees. Lois in Tallahassee, Florida, our state's capital, is far enough north to feel a completely different autumn or at least is having more fall-like weather. (Hey, Jacob, in Ocala, are you getting out the wool sweaters and stacking the firewood yet?) Thanks one and all for living in such places of beauty....and seasons.
