Lake Helen’s Fall Color

What’s that you say? You don’t believe that Central Florida actually gets Fall color? Well, for the most part, no, we don’t.  At least not like the Fall colors in the colder parts of the country.  What we do get is Fall color of a different kind.

Some of our trees’ leaves change before they drop…

Sycamore

 

"Forest Pansy" Redbud

 
And some of our trees give us color by flowering this time of the year…
 

Cassia

 

Cassia (yellow blooms) and Golden Rain Tree (red seed pods)

 
Then there are the roses… oh my goodness the roses…
