Signs of Autumn

Crisp, cool mornings, a hint of red-orange in the trees promising to soon blanket the ground with crunchy leaves.  All signs of the season to come to look something like this.


In South Florida, however, if a smiling jack-o-lantern is carved towards the beginning of October, it guarantees to frown by Halloween Day.

In these here parts, signs of fall are a little different.  Target is sure to let us know when the seasons are changing.

Not to be out done, Starbucks also has coined the fall season with its famous Pumpkin Spiced Latte (venti, no whip, please).

But Mother Nature also let us know this year that changes are a coming.

Ok, fine!  That was just a leafless tree branch from when lightening hit our big tree.  (More on that on a later post.)

But sometimes even though you might see this…

… I choose to see this.

I do miss the signs of Fall that we had in GA. I hope to get a little bit of it here in N. FL. I'll take anything! Oh, and let us not forget the palmetto bugs crawling out of the jack-o-lantern!

Oh wow. LOVE your interpretation of signs! I can't believe fall is already here. Or at the very least tiptoeing it's way in : ) Awesome pictures!

Great post! I love all the fall goodness around here ;D I know that down in FL, you probably don't get to enjoy fall as much as us Northerners, but then again YOU don't have to suffer through winter - GRRRR!!! :D

Beautiful pictures! I love your bare tree shot. I see it as a sign that it won't be around much longer. lol

Pumpkin spice lattes are my favorite sign of fall and sadly, I haven't had one yet!

Laura said...

You're making me long for fall! (and lattes!)

Jen said...

I hear you! I'm from Southern California and our signs for fall are a lot like yours.

Aging Mommy said...

I was going to do signs of fall too but then we had rain for several days solidly and like you there are not that many outdoor signs of fall around here just yet. Nice capture!

Tiffany @ No Ordinary Homestead said...

Love the pumpkin...and the last shot. Beautiful colors! Gotta love fall :)

Life in Rehab said...

LOL, I have one of these posts ready to fire too. Yep, Fall's a little different when the mercury is still hovering at 90, isn't it? However, not everyone can hit the beach on Halloween for a swim.

Alyssa said...

I love fall. I love the decorations, the colors, and yes, even the pumpkin spice lattes. :) Thanks for capturing my favorite things.
