"Possibility and promise greet me each day as I walk out into my garden. My vigor is renewed when I breathe in the earthiness and feel the dirt between my fingers. My garden is a peaceful spot to refresh my soul." Meems

Florida has Fall Colors TOO --- in January
This far south in Florida we occasionally have a few trees with fall colors. Only if we have any, it doesn't happen until winter. I guess the couple of cold snaps we've had spurred on the color changes in the maple trees.
I spotted this yellow-leaved tree among a cypress stand on my way north not far from my home. I've noticed a few of these around town.
This red one was a welcomed surprise I noticed as I was waiting in the drive-through line at Starbuck's just north of my home.
It's a little late but we don't mind. It's just nice to see some leaves changing colors.
