February in Bloom

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! 🙂

      Happy Spring to you, Evangelia! I miss you so much. It’s been far too long. I’ll be riding next to you as soon as I get that shot!
