Here in central Florida, we don’t get much of an autumn (or winter or spring for that matter!). But sometimes there are tells like when the temperature averages about 20 degrees cooler than summer. For example, our morning temps are in the 60s and afternoon highs are in the upper 70s. And the humidity finally drops to livable. Here are some more autumn tells for central Florida:
This one is pretty much everywhere — PUMPKINS, PUMPKINS, PUMPKINS!!
The changing of the leaves on the trees — okay, so there are no brilliant reds, oranges, or yellows.
And many of our trees shed their leaves and blooms this time of year, too!
And, last but not least, all of the autumn decor appears everywhere! Of course, along with the autumn decor, come October we’re seeing Christmas decorations all in the stores now. sigh….
I must admit, though, after having grown up in Kentucky, I really do miss the bright colors of the fall foliage.
