A Florida Fall

Well as you might imagine, we are not having Fall like weather here. We will see some pretty Fall colors at about Christmas time. Now we are seeing changes with the way the light slants in the windows and across the Golf Course behind out house.

This tree even has a few colorful leaves.

It’s beautiful and sunny this weekend and even cooler. (or less hot!) Lots of golfers out today!

Gorgeous pictures of "it's not Fall here yet". Makes me long for Florida~xo Diana

Susie said...

Hope you get more color...that is what we like about fall. But I loved all the sky shots. I can't get enough sunrises and sunsets. Blessings for a great Sunday. xoxo,Susie

The colors are slowly changer here at the lower elevations; the big color show was last weekend in the mountians with the aspens fully turned. Warm weather and I suppose mild seasonal changes are the reasons why seniors live in Florida, a truely beautiful state, I am learning from your wonderful photos. Have a good week, Diane

Stacey said...

It's cooler here in the mornings now and the leaves are changing on some of my plants. By changing, I mean they are falling off. :) We don't get much of what looks like fall but it's definitely sweeter weather.

Chel @ Sweetbriar Dreams said...

We are seeing some beautiful autumnal colours here. The conkers and acorns are falling from the trees and now filling my house with gorgeous rustic colours. Love this time of year! Have a wonderful week my friend xx

Mimi said...

Beautiful pictures, Diane! We have the perfect autumn weather going on here in Nebraska--upper 70's during the day and cool nights. We even had a light frost the other night. If it could stay like this until Thanksgiving, I'd be a happy camper! Hugs!

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Love those puffy clouds! Lots of pretty color here and the leaves are starting to fall. Happy Sunday:@)

TexWisGirl said...

we don't get many fall colors, either, and usually in november we see browns and yellows. :)

Karen Ann said...


When the thick of winter is upon us and it seems to stretch on and on, I envy you. In the fall, however, I love the cooler temps, crisp air, blowing leaves, the colorful leaf confetti everywhere, wood smoke smell, etc... I'll take it all :-)

Joyce Mayer said...

Hi,

We had our first frost last night, roofs and lawns were white early this morning, it was 29 degrees and the trees are beginning to turn and it is so beautiful.

Primitive Stars said...

Morning, lovely pictures. Had our first frost last night, brrrr, cold. Blessings Francine.

Geraldine said...

It's still warm here in BC, hardly any color. I LOVE fall so much, sounds like you do too, albeit a little later!!!

Hugs, G

Chris said...

Fall colours in December? Of course you are in Florida. Sure looks beautiful there in every season. Nice picture of you and your cousin last post. Sounds like you had a wonderful day. Enjoy your week!

We are having some wonderful cooler weather. Cool mornings and beautiful warm afternoons! I have noticed that a few trees have leaves changing just a tad. I hope we have a beautiful Fall. We've had a pleasant summer so am hoping for lots of gorgeous colored leaves in the next few months.

Diane said...

What a great postcard. So pretty! Fall color here is a little fickle this year. Not too interesting yet; hope it's still forthcoming.

Stephanie said...

Simply lovely, my friend :) The leaves here are now fluttering to the ground and the trees are beginning to look quite bare. Thank you for sharing your pretty pictures!

Hugs to you!

Jeanne said...

Ahhhh yes. The Florida season begins. I can't wait to get my feet in that sand over the winter.

Mihaela M. said...

Beautiful, I love fall!

Mary Cromer said...

Those cloud formations are all so pretty. I hope that you enjoy your week ;)

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Gorgeous pictures! I haven't been to Florida in years and you're making me miss it. :) We've dropped a few degrees, so at least we're not in the triple digits, but it's still not looking like fall outside. Enjoy your week!

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

Enjoy !! :)

eileeninmd said...

We are seeing some colors here and there, the trees are slow to change this year.. I love your pretty sky images in your mosaic.. Pretty tree too. Have a happy week!

Snap said...

Things do tend to stay green down here in the tropics! Ha! I think the light and sky is so pretty this time of year. We did enjoy a "cool" weekend, but it will be back to hot and humid tomorrow. UGH

Marie said...

We have the same problem you do, here in Tucson! It's still in the 90s...it might be in the 80s this coming week.

Jackie and Joel Smith said...

We are heading to Miami in December to catch a cruise. . .I can't tell you how much we look forward to your winter as compared to ours! Great photos~ happy week ahead!

podso said...

Nice mosaic Diane! I'm sure you are enjoying cooler weather today (I am in your state today) and it gives a hint of fall! Hope it continues as we head north.

Lorrie said...

Your fall is mellow, although not yellow, and pretty. Enjoy the warmth for those of us living in climates where it gets much, much colder, although we had a most summery weekend.

Denise said...

I love your mosaic, Diane! The sun beams are so pretty, and your pictures of the sky are just breathtaking!! I love the colorful leaves we have here, but I think fall is just a wonderful time of year everywhere because as you say, the sunlight is different, the skies are bluer, and the air just feels crisper and cleaner.

Happy Fall to you, my friend, and have a wonderful week!

Hugs,

Denise at Forest Manor

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

We went from Indian Summer temps last week in the 70s to 35F this morning when I walked the dog. I'm seriously thinking of pulling out the winter coat. :-)
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday Diane.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Some of the trees are beginning to turn color, especially the hard maples. I love October, my favorite month! We'll be wishing for some of your warmer weather before long, I'm sure.

Musings from Kim K. said...

We had a cold rainy weekend but the color is at it's peak in MI. We had highs in the 40s. I'm not exactly ready for those kind of temps yet.

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

Or colors are just starting to change. Love it and I'm enjoying the cooler weather. We had our heat on yesterday - 39 degrees.

Sallie Rainville said...

Beautiful even if untypical. We're back in Oregon and it is still warm! And that is ok with us. We had a very different summer (in Alaska)... Looking forward to a typical Fall ...back in FL for winter, YAY!

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Here in NC some of our leaves have been falling for a while, but are just now starting to turn colors. It was in the 30's yesterday morning and finally got up to the mid 60's. I like fall but not ready for winter!
Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY...
Blessings,
Cindy

Cranberry Morning said...

LOVE those clouds, Diane! BTW, you are a winner in my Giveaway!!! Be sure to email me with your postal address and your 'final answer' of the two soaps you want. :-))

Linda Walker said...

Hi Diane,
Love all your beautiful blue sky shots! We have had some beautiful fall weather as well and foliage is just about at peak. Have a great week! xo

With cool nights and hot days, the leaves are just beginning to turn.

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

Diane,
This is such a pretty mosaic, so dreamy. We are back to hot and humid, and not nearly as pretty as what you get to see each day. I would love to be in a climate where we had a real Fall, even though I would also have to have a real Winter!
Warm Hugs,
Jemma

Debby Ray said...

Whoa...those are some awesome looking clouds in your mosaic! Beautiful! Not much fall color here yet either :(

Donna said...

Great collage...yes we are fully into fall and the trees have lost half their leaves already.

Carla from The River said...

I love the clouds too. :-)

Liz Hockamier said...

Heck no! :P We are just now below 100. We are enjoying a lot of rain (for us) though. Everything is super green.

cynthia lee designs said...

We are just starting to get some color here in this part of Ohio.

Red Rose Alley said...

I bet you will get more Autumn colors soon and cooler weather. It is cool in the morning here, but still very warm during the day. I'm looking forward to those cool Autumn days too, Diane. I do see the leaves changing colors already, but it seems that the birds are more scarce.

~Sheri

Vee said...

Oh, yes, lots of color here, but I am truly amazed that you have color, too. How wonderful!

Pamela Gordon said...

I like your kind of fall there Diane but I think I'd miss the colours we have here. We are in full colour now and a lot of leaves have dropped. Have a great week.

Doreen@househoneys said...

Not only has Fall arrived here in New England, but lots of leaves have already fallen! Wish they would stick around a little longer :(.

Beautiful clouds Diane! Enjoy!

Marlene Plasencia said...

Hi Diane, so praying for cooler weather. I'm in South Florida, Miami. I love your view. It will get cooler, it just takes a little longer down here.
Blessings,
Marlene

Sam I Am...... said...

WE have lots of golfers here too and lake people...I'm neither. LOL!

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

When we use to drive to Jacksonville from St. Augustine to go Christmas shopping - we would count how many trees we could find that were changing colors!! Rarely had more than the fingers on one hand!

Diane Writes said...

Priceless photos! Can I just travel there now?
