Might as well be spring
Besides the tropical weather, the second most favorite reason I love living in Florida is the constant color in my garden and around our town. Something is always in bloom. Yesterday, I took my book and went to the lower lawn to sit and read. It was almost impossible to concentrate: my camillias are bursting out all over, I have a few rose buds ready to open, my ground orchids and lilies are brilliant and my geraniums' color has never been prettier.
Today is one of our little town's biggest celebrations: The Epiphany. The Greek community here really goes all out. E and I are heading down to Spring Bayou to watch the Arch Bishop throw the gold cross into the water and the young men dive for it. After wards is a big festival and, while we missed it last year, there is a Greek salad and a gyro with my name on them for sure. I love to watch the dancing and the music is infectious.
Enjoy your day!
