Intoxicating Colors of Southwest Florida

For Southwest Florida residents who hail from the north and didn’t grow up in the subtropics, the fall season can be a strange time; especially this year with our unseasonably warm weather.  Instead of pulling out warmer clothing and anticipating the changing colors of autumn leaves, it can seem like summer never really ended.  Even though we may miss out on the brilliant colors of fall foliage, News-Press storyteller Amy Bennett Williams reminds us in this week’s encore essay that Southwest Florida has plenty of its own vibrant and intoxicating natural displays of color and in the land of endless summer, we get them year-round.
