When the leaves just start to change in LA (lower Alabama) the geese show up. It all started in the fall about 10 years ago when a gander, dame and yearling trio of Canadians wintered over. The next year there were 5. Now, between 50 to 60 show up each year.
By Thanksgiving the leaves are almost all off the hardwoods, covering the
forrest’s floor in a colorful organic carpet.
In south Florida, the seasonal changes are more visibly subtle. Most of the tourists are gone from the beaches and Winter’s harsh impact has the gulf
and pool temp too cool for use, except for some Europeans and Yankees. Other than that the grass gets a little brown. High today…77.
