Fall in South Mississippi

Fall in Gulfport MS can be very subtle. While the northern states have the reds, yellows, and oranges of leaves turning, down here we have black-eyed susans that turn fields golden. The roadways are lined with hedges of golden rod mixed in with argeratum. Purple and gold line our roads instead of orange, red, and yellow. The temperatures start creeping down into the 80's and 70's with bouts of dips into the 50's at night.

Seawitch,
It looks great.
Sometimes I miss north hemisphere seasons.
(exception -no snowy winters, thank you)

felis,

It actually snowed on Christmas Day last year!! Down here, it snows once maybe every 7 years or snow. It's so infrequent that if it snows at night, I and a lot of others are outside playing in it, even at midnight.
