The arrival of spring is a subtle thing in Florida, but the tabebuias of Tampa herald it with a grand explosion of neon pink and yellow all over town.
I think we should call this event Tampabuia. More hikes around Hillsborough State Park:Red-shouldered hawk hunting. Bromeliads galore. Native green fly orchids in bloom (epidendrum magnoliae).Same spot every time. I tried to get a better photo of her yesterday but she bellyflopped into the river before I took my phone out. And some long walks on the beach back in the Fort. Terns facing the wind.Cats doing cat stuff.
March forth and enjoy this beautiful weather! 🙂
