Fall Colors - Florida style


Monday September 29th, I searched high and low for fall colors in my backyard.. I found the purple passion plant had grown itself in a perfect wreath on the fence.


I found water droplets on the elephant ears


And then thought... I AM THE MADSNAPPER... 

Hello PicMonkey/Hello FALL COLORS
But WAIT! there's MORE......



Pink Hibiscus, blooms year round
  I did find True Fall Colors, in fact Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter colors here.

Good Morning! Oh, I love that the vine has made a wreath. I can't wait for my elephant ears to be as pretty as yours. Love the water droplets on them. Love the colors that you added with picmonkey. Hope you have a nice day. Thanks for sharing the pink hibiscus, too.

Elephant ears and purple passion are two of my warm weather favorites and if I could, I would. Nice fall touch-up too!!!!...:)JP

I'd say you have a "make your own fall" sort of yard. The colors around here aren't as colorful this year. The cool weather has not been good for the trees.

Best,
Bonnie

Oh how I dream of days filled with warm weather, luscious green plants all year long, and NO winter coats or snow boots! Our weathered has been perfect the past two weeks, cool mornings, warm afternoons! I love the wreath that Mother Nature created! You do amazing creations with picmonkey!

i love your lush greens just as they are. :)

That first where the Madsnapper strikes again is truly wonderful.

And glad you told that the passion vine grew that way...the first thing I wondered when I opened this post was 'did Madsnapper train it to grow that way?' So you read my mind even before I thought the question and answered it.

I thought that first shot was a wreathe you had made at first. It looks lovely! Great series of photos from your pretty yard.

Chatty Crone said...

Your colors are beautiful! Love them.

You still have me in awe that we live in the same country.

Joyful said...

Beautiful! How interesting that the one plant made itself into a wreath. Have a wonderful week. xx

Ginny said...

Wow, I don't think I have ever seen a baby pink hibiscus! The ones here are bright primary colors. This one is beautiful. What you did with the Elephant Ears is very pretty, too. They look a bit like a large arrowhead plant.

If it ain't happenin', make it happen.

Willow said...

Susannah said...

No need to worry.... you have the fall colors at your fingertips. I love the elephant ear! Your photos are so darn good!!!!!!

Ruth Hiebert said...

Beautiful. The Hibiscus is always a treat.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I'll take the pink hibiscus bloom anytime of year! And I LOVE that natural wreath on the fence. What a cool thing.

Your pic monkey creations area always outstanding. [I went out this morning in the drizzle along a birding trail in search of color changes too...found very little.]

Log on to my blog today to see some northern fall colors. Your colors are nice, too.

Lovely images! I love the "make my own fall" shot..

We did not even have fall colors during our September week in the Smoky Mountains, Except for a few fallen leaves and the dogwood trees which were beginning to turn. Four grandkids provided plenty of fall fun, though! Kudos on your MadSnapper seasonal color photos. and I appreciated the all natural wreath.

Ann said...

fabulous fall foliage :)
I like your purple passion plant wreath. That was very kind of it to grow like that for you

Catherine said...

Hello Sandra! Although I have not been commenting, I have been peeking in on everyone!
Wishing you a most wonderful October friend!

SquirrelQueen said...

Haha, that's one way to have autumn in FL. It looks like a fall fantasy world. I love the wreath of vines.

SweetMarie said...

I love your wreath! It makes me miss my Orlando vines. :) Pretty pretty hibiscus!

Cranberry Morning said...

I missed being here yesterday, was gone all day. How nice of the plant to make a wreath for you! And the hibiscus is gorgeous and delicate. Pure loveliness. Laughed at... predictable... You spicing things up with pic monkey. Lol

EG CameraGirl said...

I cannot imagine seeing flowers blooming all year long. I wonder where the hibiscus finds the energy to do that.

Betty Manousos said...

wow, the colours are just beautiful!
great edits/great work, sadra!
your yard is so pretty with all that fall foliage. the hibiscus is really gorgeous, too.

carolann said...

I was not here yesterday so I am back tracking on your blogs.

I love the greens also.

Deb said...

you did an awesome job...we have a few leaves falling...but no Fall color yet

Ida said...

How neat that the vine formed a wreath. You are very clever creating your own "fall color".

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Of course the MadSnapper can make her own Fall colors!!!!
