Though we are in Florida, we are way high north, almost in Georgia. They say you have to go this far north in Florida to find Southern culture!
Thus, we have the seasons. Our winter is mild compared to other parts of the U.S., of course. Still we had a colder than usual winter season and welcome the warmer weather. Amelia celebrates by showing off her azalea finery. This year, probably because of the cold snaps, it is awesome. Take a look at the treasures in my neighbor's yard. Ours are a bit slower. It is like we have it timed.
The light was captured by my iPad camera at just the right moment. This is one of my favorites.
If you are reading this from a cold clime, I hope that these
photos remind you that warmth and color are not far off.
I call this my watercolor photo. Again, the iPad did its own thing and nearly transferred
a sort of watercolor of these flowers, ready for the artist canvas.
