Lush And Green

With all of the rain we've been getting lately, the world here is lush and green. Everything that can bloom is doing so, and the grass and all the plants look amazing.

While it's inconvenient for it to rain almost every day, it only does so for a while. And though Central Florida is the lightning capital of the world, the storms sure clean the air and then, when the sun is shining, just driving around here feels like I'm on vacation.

Those flowers are called naupaka in Hawaiian, and are quite prevalent around the Hawaiian Islands.

:) i know exactly what you mean whe you say about feeling like being on vacation...:)While we were back there, every time we'd drive on Courtney Campbell Causeway to Clearwater from Tampa, I'd feel as if I'm in Florida for vacation.
