  1. Such a beautiful place, Xenia πŸ™‚ we do not have red or yellow leaves in autumn. I don’t think we have autumn here. It’s either spring, summer, rainy or winter season. πŸ™‚

      1. Lucky indeed, Xenia. I have only seen the golden and red leaves in pictures. I hope I get to see autumn leaves in real some day. πŸ™‚
        We have rainy season twice – once in June and again in October . The October one is called retreating monsoon. How different seasons are in different places, isn’t it? πŸ™‚

      2. Yes, they are very different! While we are rolling into Autumn it is Spring in the Southern Hemisphere. I didn’t realise the October one is called ‘retreating monsoon’, thank you so much for sharing this Rekha :o) xxx

    Florida where this New Cold Front is not only a Welcome
    Guest but a Savior Now Sweeping Away Michael from
    Our Panhandle Parts Sadly East in Destruction

    1. Thank you Fred and good to hear from you after Michael – our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the Hurricane. We only had remnants of storm Callum here and he blew past within a couple of days. Hope you, Katrina and Yellow Boy are all safe and well πŸ’œ

  3. Oh I wish I could just DRIVE over with Bear and Teddy and take a walk with you, Pearl and Eivor in this wonderland. On Mt. Palomar, in California, in wet years, there are ferns, but only occasionally and, coming from this high mountain paradise, ferns are from another world for me. They are very beautiful here in fall, ❀
