Spring is here in North Central Florida!

Ms. Mollie and her pool

Zucchini starts

Last years remnant "Wishbone Flower"



the only "fake" hibiscus in my yard

a Hibiscus I bought at a nursery where I was working last year. It grew
5 feet after I put it into the ground

Zephyr Lilies down the road...

tis' the season for our lemon, Satsuma and grapefruit flowers
 AND I have seen BEES pollinating them!!!!!

Mollie and my "Wendy's Wish" Salvia patch

Nine years ago I  got / planted 3 of these ferns from a neighbor...now I have hundreds


I love the clouds and low rolling
(ANCIENT sand dunes) HILLS HERE


The Rainbow River on an atypical day (no crowds) at the 484 bridge in Dunnellon



I found this huge red bow on the side of the road when I was taking wildflower pictures a few weeks ago.  I put it on that nearby fire hydrant for my Uncle Jimmy, who was a fireman in Columbus, Ohio and passed away a few years ago.
 





I have wanted to paint this black plastic mailbox for a while now and finally did it.  Now I just have to worry about  whether or not the local "tweekers" will steal it. Looks real eh?  I am still hillbilly through and through y'all.



Ah the Redbuds are in bloom here too!

Mollie last week on the Crystal River at Crystal River Archaeological Park
