In Bloom

Bird of Paradise

Amaryllis

In the six years we have been coming to Florida for the winter, I have not seen the amount of blooming that is going on this year.  The sun has been shining for two weeks straight.  In fact, we have had only two showers and one big thunder storm to interrupt the sun shining for the whole month of March to date.  I'm not bored yet, though.
I did just talk to my grand son on the phone.  So that makes me want to go home.  I'll bet that the kids have done some blooming of their own in my absence.

  1. The flowers are lovely. It is interesting to see what is blooming in various parts of the country.

    I'm sure the grandkids have also been blooming. They seem to grow so fast.

  3. What lovely pictures of the blooms. You bet those grand babies will bloom this spring. It seems like its this time of the year for big growth spurts.

  6. Surprised at all the blooming as dry as it has been. Sounds like a tad of homesickness is setting in. A good dose of grands should cure that.

  7. It is great to travel but it is also great to go back home again - at least for a little while!
