Color Me Fall


It seems like everyone I know spent at least a few days in North Carolina or Tennessee immersed in the gold and orange leaves of fall. Since that wasn’t in the cards for us this year, we found our own Florida version of these same fall colors. First stop: Lake Jessup to slog through the mud to get a closeup look at the swamp sunflowers.

In every direction, more gold sunflowers.

Then we were surrounded by orange at St. Marks as the monarch butterflies migrated through the coast of northwest Florida.

The brilliant gold and orange of fall was evident almost every morning in November as the sun rose over the lake. And we even found signs of fall in the hammock at sunset or while enjoying an evening fire.

And who knew I’d be able to hug a little yellowjacket, complete with a tinge of orange hair.

I found plenty of fall colors without ever leaving Florida.
