When I work up day before yesterday the far back of my yard looked like this; fog! Yes, it is that season of the year here; we get thick fog. Oh we will probably have a few more what we call cold days but it is nothing compared to what some of you in the northern states are getting. It is still winter but I’m getting spring fever. For the last three or four days it weather has been in the 70s; just perfect for working in the yard.
My five year old grandson calls the extreme back piece of my property “the jungle” because I have banana, avocado, papaya, loquat, fig, olive and guava trees back there. I also have my vegetables garden and several kinds of flowers. I suppose it might look like a jungle to him.
Yes, we do have seasons in Florida and there is something in every one of them that I love. I like to sit on my back-porch and watch it rain and when it is foggy and chilly I pull on sweats and sat in my glider with my hands wrapped around a steaming cup of coffee. The sun breaking through the clouds is a beautiful sight to behold. Because I put out food I have so many wild birds that come to visit. I try to catch photos of them. I’ll share some in another post.
The first of the week my son was here from Texas and we built a big fire in our large pit. While we were enjoying it a flock of wild geese flew over; heading back north. And yesterday my yard was full of red-breast robins. I do believe those are sure signs that our winter cold is almost gone; or will be in the next couple of weeks. I’m always excited for the spring season because that is when I get the soil ready and plant my spring and summer gardens.
Like I said there is something special in every season and I thank God that I am able to see and enjoy them. Living in Florida was one of the goals I set for myself when I was just a child and I’m thankful I fulfilled it. I love my little piece of Florida.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon. Until then keep enjoying all the blessings God gives you, trust me they are too many to count. God Bless
