Fall in the South: Reward for Surviving the Summer

November 24, 2013

There is a saying in the South “Fall is a Southerner’s reward for surviving the summer” and after experiencing the summer here as compared to Ohio over the years, I would absolutely have to agree. Even though the 2013 summer was mild in comparison to other summers, it was still sweltering. Late September through the end of November is hands down one of my favorite times to be in the South. It is still warm during the day, but the mornings and evening are cool and the humidity is minimal. I love it. There is football, the fair, and all sorts of activities…. but it is the weather and the change of season that really makes it great. While many places further north hit their peak leave times in late September/early October, it is normally late November before we get our bright color changes. And it has been lovely to see. Below are a smattering of photos I’ve taken from around the South this fall season.

Seriously…. I love looking at this tree in my front yard everyday. All the leaves will be gone in a day or a few weeks, but I’ve been enjoying them while I can! Love fall in the South!
