A Tree In Its Florida Winter Dress

In Avalon Park

Central Florida is mostly sunny with blue sky, warm temperatures and lush landscape, and I am told too often how sad it is that we don't have the colorful fall season.

sprinkle the color

And yes, it is true we do not have the spreading orange/red forests, but we do have winter color, it just comes in sprinkles.

Little goes a long way, and one tree in its glorious winter dress really does stand out :-)

Here are some snapshots taken on a Sunday afternoon in Avalon Park, Orlando Florida:
