Real Florida #2
It was such a pretty day, though hot (92F(33C), 98F(37C) with heat index), and it had been a while since I just moseyed around with camera in hand, that I had taken half a dozen shots before even entering the park itself.
I'm proud enough an American to wait for a little breeze to come up and wave the flag a bit against that beautiful blue sky. One soon arrived and I got this snap. Notice the dead trees in the background. Florida is mostly sand, saw palmetto which grow thick and close to the ground, and pine trees. Alive and dead.
The second photo is where they had recently planted some plants to attract butterflies for one of their butterfly gardens. I didn't see any butterflies though.
I guess I was the only moron willing to risk heat stroke by flittering around the park that hot summer afternoon.
Today, on my other blog, Least Significant Bits, I posted six old family photos of my Dad's side of my family. If any of you care to, you can go on over and take a gander.
