Florida Fall Forest Foliage

Try to say that 3 times in a row…real fast! heehee!

40FT

The forests are beautiful right now and probably look more like late summer than Fall but I thought I would share a few pics with you from our hikes.

It’s beautiful here any time of year. So many of our trees and shrubs stay green year round.

Hello, beautiful images and mosaics. Your colors are lovely and of course the birds are beautiful. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week!

I get laughed at too by friends in New England that think I can't possibly experience Fall here...but we do, even if it's subtle. Happy week to you, Sis XOXO

Lois said...

Lovely shots!

Maggie Ann said...

I love how you get out and about! All these little joys filling up your weeks, how special! I must get my knitting out soon here....I am tidying up the house, something only I can do and then hubby will run the sweeper. I have to remind myself...I'm the one who gets things out and leaves them lying about. No regrets....haha. Hugs, k.

Beautiful snapshots of your Florida Fall Forest Foliage! You’re absolutely right! That’s a mouthful, of tongue twisters!

Susie said...

Diane, I love seeing all the things you see on your hikes. It's such fun. You do have lots of color there still. There's not a lot of colorful leaves left since the high winds and rains. Tired of raking anyways. LOL. Still lots of winterizing to do here. Blessings to you, enjoy the fun time outdoors. xoxo, Susie

Gorgeous photos, as usual, Diane. Oh, this season is so very lovely!

Your mosaics are so pretty, and it's nice to see ow the seasons really do change in your part of Florida! Lovely post!

Cherdecor said...

Your mosaic pictures are lovely. Our weather is getting cooler and rainy. The leaves were gorgeous on Friday, but now they are on the ground. SIGH!

Gina said...

Diane, you are in NC! Can you email me at bylanternlight@yahoo.com
I’d love to find out how long you’ll be here etc. Maybe we can meet for coffee! Xx

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Beautiful mosaics my dear. Your state is lovely most any time of the year - though I'd prefer not to visit in the hot hot hot part of summer. We are having heavy rains - 4 inches since Saturday and very high winds - gale warnings most of the time. The poor trees are tossed and battered about. Hope your week is as wonderful as you are.

Lorrie said...

It's nice to see that there's a bit of fall colour in Florida. I enjoy the change of seasons very much and would miss it if I lived somewhere less seasonal. Enjoy your travels here and there.

BeachGypsy said...

Marilyn @ MountainTopSpice said...

What a beautiful collection of pictures Diane! You surely do get to enjoy beautiful things all year long! I think my favorite picture was the butterfly perched on the flower, that was just beautiful. So nice you're getting to enjoy some fall colors too! I hope you continue to have a lovely week!

So many wonderfully coloured pictures in your mosaics. I love them. Have a great week :)

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, that orange butterfly is so pretty. It's the second orange butterfly I saw today on a friend's blog. I can't say that three times in a row, I tried hehehe.

love, ~Sheri

David Gascoigne said...

Congratulations on a fine series of pictures. November here is a little gloomy, neither fall nor winter, and often grey skies.

Debby Ray said...

Wonderful mosaics, Diane...no matter what the season, there is so much beauty to behold! Enjoy the rest of your week and especially your time in the NC mountains! Maybe if I holler real loud you can hear my echo...LOL! Hugs!

Angie said...

Diane - a little behind on my blogging this week .... but your post was worth waiting for!!! Thank you for including the grasshoppers - I always think the structure of their legs is so amazing! Have a colorful weekend!
