This is the glorious season when the leaves of trees and even some shrubs turn to brightly colored hues of reds, oranges, yellows and mixtures of all those warm and vibrant colors. BUT, as most of you realize Florida -- at least coastal Florida --- doesn't have much in the way of seasonal color changes. It is regrettably one of the flaws, if there are any, of this great climate. We've published as many posts as possible revealing our year round autumnal colored foliage in order to provide a faux substitute.
Fortunately, I just returned from a visit with my sister, Marmee, in Franklin, Tennessee. We've both published extensively about our visit but I haven't yet shared with you all the fall colors I captured while we were traveling the scenic roads of Tennessee. Many of them are from our tour of Cheekwood Botanical Gardens.
Of course, you can imagine I was ooohing and aaaahhing everywhere we went completely enamored by the beauty of autumn as I only get to see when I travel north.

For lots more fall photos, Dave, who also lives in gorgeous Tennessee country started the Garden Blogger Fall Project from his blog, The Home Garden.
