Pshaw.. Fall.. yeah, right.

Before dawn I heard my blinds being bounced around... when I took a closer look this is what I found...  can we say there was some anxiouty going on? heh...

So.. I've been searching for signs of Fall here in southern Florida... so far... this is it!

Some acorns on a LiveOak Tree.    I guess the Live Oak is a relative of the Northern Oak Trees but the leaves don't resemble them too much, nor do the trees grow huge like up north. They aren't even brown yet.

Being a bit down over having so little of Fall I went to feed the birds.  Almost no one was around but the Moorhens.. and one crow.

No Herons.. not even the pita Ibis were around!... this was not turning into a good day...

Until..

The mail man came..

Look what was in the mail!

It's a smiley face, Debi Pumpkin!!!!  and corn!!! 

Fall had come to Southern Florida after all!!!!

(thank you again Debi!! hugs!)  What a surprise it was! I love my little pumpkin face!  Now.. if only the weather would drop to 70 and the leaves on the trees would turn colors!  Not gunna happen huh? Oh well, me and my pumpkin can dream!
