Earlier this week, I decided to go look for signs of fall here in my neighborhood. Even in nature that’s mostly evergreen, there should be some signs of the seasons changing. Other than somewhat cooler temperatures with occasional cold fronts, shorter days and migrating birds.
When I looked carefully, I found some seasonal colors in our garden, on the beach, around the bay and the salt marsh in the park. We don’t see the type of stunning color palettes you have up north, but I found a few small spots of eye-popping color. I hope you like the Florida fall colors I picked up on my walk.
Sending warm thoughts and prayers to those blogging friends who experienced the epic snow storm this week, and are now expecting flooding. Please stay safe. You can read about their struggle on Amy’s blog.
Love always, Tiny

Beautiful collection of fall photos!
Thank you, I’m happy you liked the bright spots of fall color here in the south.
Really great colour in your pics today, Tiny. Those bright pink seed pods and the Muscovy duck are my favourites. 🙂
Thanks Sylvia! The Muscovy Duck always gets into my pictures as it tends to follow me when I’m on the east end of the marsh…I think its home is nearby.
Autumn with that southern coastal look.
Yes, I think it’s beautiful in its own small way…
Subtle, but there. You just have to look around.
Bless you, Tiny, for linking my post to yours. I am deeply grateful to you, my friend. Sending Much Love to you and (((HUGS))) Amy
I hope you got some little sleep, Amy. And that the weekend will prove easier than might be expected. Sending love, warm thoughts and prayers – Tiny
Tiny, it is pouring rain right now and yes, we have flood warnings. Hubs and I spent all afternoon getting as much snow and ice from off our roofs. We have prepared our basement. We both are so exhausted I think we could fall asleep standing up. Thank you for the reblog and your Love. (((HUGS))) Amy
Dear Amy, it’s good to be prepared, but I hope and pray, it’ll not be needed. I wish you a good night’s sleep. Lots of love and hugs!
I had trouble sleeping last night, Tiny. Just too much on my mind. We are still dry and without any damages. I am going to try to drive around in my car to get more photos. Try. (((HUGS))) Amy
Color is there if you look. Wonderful pics my friend. Stay warm and wear your socks. 😉
That’s what I thought too, I saw the color as soon as I was looking for it …and yes, wearing my socks 😀
Bird of Paradise… one of my faves. I miss the enormous one I had in SoCal. Thanks for the photos!
It’s one of my faves as well, and to my surprise I found a couple that were not dead yet 🙂 Have a great weekend!
Much nicer than the colours here. With three days of steady frost (-15 with the wind chill right now) grey is about all we have 🙂
When you have -15 it’s bound to limit the colors in nature mostly to whites, grays and browns. But maybe a little green in the pines and firs? A some blue in the sea? Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm!
The autumn colors are not quite as brilliant here as in New England . . . but that’s OK by me. Thanks for some good captures.
Greatly enjoyed, thank you.
I would have liked to have seen the images, Helen; from the comments they must have been wonderful. However, not one did I see! How strange; this is surely a first. I shall just have to picture them mentally, and know they are gorgeous. Have a great Sunday. 😉
Sweet Tiny you found some gorgeous signs of fall. Fantastic pictures. Hugs
Thank you Mag. There are some colorful spots in the evergreen, but I don’t always see them. Happy you enjoyed the pictures. Hugs to you too!
