Signs of Autumn………….

1). Football is back!

      The Bucs…..no comment….

      The USF Bulls finally won one….

      The Gators…..oh yeah!

                   Though I am a USF Bull,my money went to Gainesville,with Erich,the Younger

 

2). Every morning,I can feel the start of Autumn.

             It seems cooler.

                          ……Or else I’m living in a dream world…..and I’m pretty good at that…..

3). The veggie garden is in full Fall mode…..

 

The first Roma tomatoes……

except for Christmas-

When Autumn seems to be in the air,I do it.

Maybe because it reminds me of when I lived in New England.

….And I was always good at pretend….

Your fall decorations are happy and colorful, and yes the crotons definitely say 'autumn', for FL.

I feel 'fall' in the mornings too. Those 'hints' let us know it will be here sooner or later, hopefully sooner. I'm raring to get outside to work on projects.

Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

You forgot to mention the Dolphins! LOL - I know you're a Patriot fan. Looks like neither one of us is happy about this past weekend's games. Your decorations look great, and that butternut squash soup made me hungry. I've got one sitting on the counter, and now I know what I'll do with it.

DOLPHINS!

Oh. Sorry.

Love the photos.

I miss growing crotons here. There's something very "Florida" about them.

Having been a loooong time(since the 60's and the old AFL) Bills fan,I cannot accept the very existence of the Dolphins!

Nice Autumn selection... my husband is glued to the TV between college and the pros. Did I see you say a Bills fan? They have not been too popular in the last few years. My husband is rarely pleased with their play.
