WINTER means cold temperatures and snow to many people.

Southerners continue wear shorts and sunglasses but there is a defined look for the season.

Palm fronds turn brown, Spanish moss hangs on to trees while the leaves fall to the ground and skies often look milky.

A look down the canal is an example of what winter looks like in Florida; it isn’t always lush and green and there isn’t any snow.

    1. There are signs at the beginning of the trail to beware of the alligators. We did see quite a few fortunately they appeared to have tummies full because we made it through without having to run or scream like school girls 🙂

  1. I have to admit that, living in New England, I find it hard to conceive of a winter that doesn’t involve snow, frozen ponds and layers of clothes. Your winter is more serene. This photo looks Impressionistic.

    1. Most of our lives we experienced the same as you. The only part I miss is the freshly fallen snow coating trees. You totally saw the impressionistic touches I added!

    1. There are so many tranquil places other than the theme parks here but most people come to whoop it up and be entertained that they miss what I think are the best parts of being here.

      1. I came over to Florida for a “me” holiday last summer, and went on a canoe trip on a river just outside Tampa, it was so gorgeous… and so peaceful. I loved it

  2. Interesting…I thought things WERE green etc all year round there…a subtle, though still beautiful winter season is new info for me! Your photo really says shows a peaceful, resting Mother Nature.

  3. Beautiful. It may not be lush green, but is GREEN. 😀 We have hit an unusual mild snap that will be over by morning. Sometimes Winter is Slush Brown-Grey.
