Everyone is posting about Autumn. Autumn is a gorgeous time of the year for most states. However here in Florida and for some of the Southern states it’s a bit different weather wise. The trees do lose their leaves but they do not get baron, the grass grows a little slower and the landscaping companies only come every two weeks instead of every week. The temperature does get cooler and at times a light jacket or sweater is required, unless you are a Snow Bird then you will still be wearing a tee shirt, shorts and sandals. We do celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas just like the rest of the country except each family will do it in their own way.
I believe that the four seasons are imbedded in your heart and soul, depending on where and how you were raised. I see a change when Autumn arrives. I see brown leaves gathering on the ground and feel Mother Nature’s breath in the air. I see a few yellow leaves on the trees and the tips of the palm trees leaves turn slightly brown. I have been programed for Autumn and no matter where I live I will always welcome it.
The restaurants will be filled to capacity all through the season and the Snow Birds will be relaxing on the beaches but most of the locals will not take to the ocean or the pools for that matter because it will be too cold for us. We will however still barbeque and enjoy the out doors. We will all welcome Autumn and wait patiently for the Winter to follow.
