Signs of fall (in the swamp)

Signs of fall in the swamp are subtle,

But they are there if you know where to look.

The cypress-pine
swamp mosaic really
starts to "pop"


Dwarf cypress prairie
become needle bare indicating
less daylight hours

Resurrection fern shrinks
to shriveled state indicating
less rain

Cold water seeps into boots
indicating lower air temperatures

(Okay, I'll admit ... this one not yet)

Can you think of others?
