“Enchanting Ocala Home Fall Decor – Backyard Pond Draped In Seasonal Colors”
Fall In North Central Florida
My wife and I met on Miami Beach when she visited South Florida on her winter break. I was a student at the University of Miami at the time, having transferred from the University of Toronto to escape shivering through another Canadian winter. I was awed by her beauty, but reluctant to intrude on her vacation. Then a strange force invaded my thoughts. It was as if someone took control of my body and led me to her chaise. Suddenly, strange words began to come out of my mouth. What happened next changed my life. But that is a story for a different time.
Growing up in Canada, we both experienced the picturesque migration of seasons from summer to fall. Grand maple trees would shed their garments of green and don robes of golds, oranges and reds. Parks would be dotted with chestnut vendors and candy apple carts. People would wander the streets dressed in the earthtones of fall and enjoying the treats these merchants offered. The charm of the fall season enveloped everyone.
But these times are now distant memories. Today we reside in North Central Florida, in the land of endless summer. The change of seasons is but a dream. That is the way our friends in Toronto envision our state. But of course, we Ocalans know the real Marion County. One need only take a drive on the I-75 to bask in the changing colors of fall. Here too, local deciduous trees shed their lush green garb and replace it with the browns, oranges, reds and golds of fall. Ocala’s fall is marked by weekend art walks, symphony in the park concerts, arts and crafts shows and other great adventures.
Ocala Home Fall Decor – Celebrations & Thanks
The fall season brings a celebration of colors, fun for children of all ages and the opportunity to be thankful for all we have received in this life. While the pandemic is still upon us, we see a light at the end of the tunnel. Soon our children will celebrate Halloween, a mascarade ball filled with spooky happenings and candy treats. It is a truly wondrous time to be a child. Soon after, we will share a Thanksgiving dinner with family and show appreciation for the bounty our family enjoys and the opportunity to share happy times together.
Bring The Season Into Our Homes
To be sure, many also enjoy draping their homes and gardens in colors that accentuate the celebration of fall. Adding such special touches need not be expensive and can greatly enhance the joy of the season. Autumn is a time to bring rustic touches to our interiors and exteriors. It is a time to remember our ancestors who celebrated the harvest, an event that would provide the sustenance required to ensure their survival through the winter months. Therefore, we decorate with art depicting the fruits of harvests, pumpkins and other touches designed to bathe us in the spirit of the season.
