Autumn is a time I look forward to. It’s relief from the Florida heat that somehow gives you renewed energy. It’s a time for yard work and a change of the porch plants to something more suitable to fall. The dogs love the first cool spell. They revel in the fresh air, bird watch and chase squirrels.
Unlike most of the country, here fall means the turning of colors from green to brown. And for the most part we don’t get to enjoy the beautiful gold and russet colors our friends to the north do. But oh that cooler weather!
We fling open the windows and enjoy. And we wait. We wait for the cold hard breezes, bare trees and dried grasses that signal winter. But until then it’s fall!
