I am moving to Florida. It's just too cold here. My mermaid blood just can't take this frigid weather. Bah humbug!
Oh wait. Let me check. Oops! I am in Florida. Central Florida. Out in no man's land. I do so love the beauty here. Today it was in the mid 70's. By 8pm it is already down to 50F and dropping.
I am shivering. The little ceramic heater is on full blast. I get up to check the thermometer and notice an open window. *Sigh* Maybe if I close the window, it will finally warm up inside. (Did my brain freeze up?)
Here are some candid photos I took and a map of the location I shot them in. Life is beautiful (but getting c-c-c-cold.)
|My location on the palmetto prairie at Three Lakes Wildlife Management Area in Florida.|
|Characteristic plants are saw palmetto, beardgrass, gallberry, wiregrass, and carpetgrass. |
Pine trees and cabbage-palms hammocks are widely scattered.
|Sunrise resembles fire in the distance. |
Low lying fog blurs the undergrowth.
|My little puppy dog and I walk this road several times a day.|
He likes to water the plants and fertilize them.
|There is always something beautiful in bloom.|
|The western sunlight begins to fade beneath a canopy of clouds.|
