Fall in Florida

Posted by
Viewfinder (Bradenton, FL, United States) on 8 October 2008 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Ahh, the season of leaves changing and falling is upon us. Somewhere up north and out west, maples are ablaze in reds and oranges, aspens are waving golden banners and people are oohing and aahhing over the beauty of it all. Not to be outdone, here in tropical Florida, we have seasons, too. And to prove it, here is a fallen leaf from our backyard sycamore tree. I found it a couple of days ago while walking in our garden.

[I hope everybody knows I am joking around...]

Yippee! Fall has arrived ... we need a Sycamore in our yard!

Bella, we're thinking of you as you move through this next week; we wait with anticipation that the cumulative prayers will be answered the way we humans dream of.

Actually the leaves up here haven't really started changing too much - how great that Florida is going to get an early winter this year ;-)

Nice shot.....

@Jennifer Hatcher: This would be very, very true. Dahlonega or Helen would be nice.

A beautiful fall leaf VF.....our "winter" (much like yours in Florida) would be laughed at by those far north countries or States that experience winter in all of it's White glory. So I salute your little fall leaf as it is much like ours here!!! :) Glad to hear Bella is still marching on like the true champ she is!!!

Beautifully done. For some reason - I'm having an unusually difficult time saying farewell to summer. It is also most silly - for it has clearly departed...

Along with spring, Autumn has to be one of my favourite seasons, and the only ones that do what they are supposed too lol.
A beautiful image to symbolise The falling of the leaf and the changing of the season :)

Fall is so beautiful, shame its just leading us into winter, this is such a cool capture, love the colors on the leaf, and its position in relation to the gaps in the rocks oor tiles
