June In Bloom

Only an hour ago the sky was bright blue, and now as I write this, dark gray clouds are churning by.

Breakfast with the Big Cats

On a narrow dirt road just off the interstate in Tampa, through a tunnel of oak trees, you’ll find 67 acres of scrub, tree canopy, and lakes where cats roam.

The Florida Postcard Project

I’ve been collecting old Florida postcards for years. I pick them up here and there, especially the ones with familiar places, or my favorite plants, or a lovely note to a friend. 

October In Bloom

We spent this past week at our favorite little hideaway on an elbow of Big Pine Key.

Ocean-Friendly Boat Lunches

Hurricane Michael is far offshore from Tampa but it’s spinning off storms in our direction. The clouds are passing over our house so quickly we can watch them from the window like cars driving by. I hope everyone in the Panhandle is boarded up and hunkered down. 

Hurricane Lists

I’m feeling for our friends and family in the path of Hurricane Florence.
