Autumn on Amelia Island

We don't get a leaf drop here in the fall, just some golden colors in our marsh grasses. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Amelia Island is just south of the Golden Isles of Georgia. We turn the same golden color in the fall but the marketing name is theirs. We get an actual leaf drop in February when the new growth on our towering Magnolias and Live Oaks pushes out the old - but still green - leaves. As a consequence, some of the school kids on the island get the question wrong when asked when "fall" is.
