Okay, maybe there as been the odd day with rain, 2, but by evening the sky had cleared.... rain is needed here, region hasn't had the usual rainfall . At first grass was brown greening up now. how can one mind a bit of rain.. but as a Northerner I so appreciate the sun and blue sky on nearly every day.
Warm today about 75.
Been very busy,
exploring Weeki Wachee area ,a different direction each day .
We are staying an area that is vacation homes for Floridians, not a snowbird haven , have not seen any other Canadians at all nor even many licence plates from out of state.........
The home is situated in a quite forested area near a mangrove swamp seeing lots of birds and lots of fish in the canal ....fishermen and ladies...... people kayaking......
Even had a first sighting of a manatee in the canal just off the dock... maybe 25 feet away.. not fast enough to get a picture Yet!
orange trees, kumquats,
Home came with a juicer so fresh orange , tangerine or grapefruit juice every day.... Heavenly flavour.
Some lovely shade trees; camphor trees which are very messy but the robins love the fruit.
|sweep steps every day|
|very straight tall camphor trees but oh so messy is the fruit!|
Egrets come for a visit as do
herons.......Friendly and not scared of humans..
Never seen a flower on an Aloe plant but here it is!
