In the hills behind my Dads house there are some natural sand dunes.  I like to go there to be alone , especially after a rainy period.  I have never been here in La Florida this long, meaning past April, so alot of what has been coming into bloom is a surprise to me as a Naturalist to see.  Above seems to be a ground version of a mimosa. What a delight to find this morning .  I have been feeling sick so have been taking some days off to just take some pictures and spend some time with my blog.
 This is a speciman Oak-Leafed Hydrangea outside of the Dunnellon Library. They are native to Florida and I am in love . I had not seen an Oak leafed this large before.  I will have to add that to my yard plant collection at some point.
