No, of course not. Panama is located in the Tropical Zone where we don’t have the usual four seasons common in the Northern Hemisphere, (e.g., Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter). Here we have only two seasons: the dry and wet season. During the dry season, many trees lose their leaves carpeting the ground with dry brown leaves somewhat similar to the fall in the North. During the wet season, it’s a different story. Everything in painted green—green like the Irish color.
Our fallen leaves are not as colorful and bright as you’ve probably seen in the States or Canada where deciduous trees are found. Colored autumn foliage is most famously noted in three regions of the world: most of Canada and the U.S., Eastern Asia (including China, Korea, and Japan), and Europe.
Eastern Canada and the New England area of the United States, are famous for the brilliance of their autumnal foliage. This seasonal event attracts major tourism raking in billions of greenbacks for the regions.
While driving back and forth from my house to my wife’s work, I saw a patch of a carefully-cared-for lawn with several trees flanking the perimeter of the USMA University. The trees were losing their foliage and the ground was fully covered with brown leaves creating the impression of Autumn, thus the title of this post.
I captured these scenes for your enjoyment. Here we go with two images of fall in Panama. By fall I mean fallen leaves, mind you.
Sorry if I mislead you with the title of this post. Nope, we don’t have Autumn in Panama; at least not yet. However, Mother Nature is so mixed up nowadays, that I wouldn’t be surprised if it snows in Panama. This year it even snowed in Florida, for crying out loud. Good Day.
