Springtime in Pensacola
I love all the beautiful blooming flowers and the clear blue skies. The relatively low humidity. Not so much the allergies that go with the flowering oaks and pine tree pollen, or the carpenter bees that can't get enough of the old, old cedar siding on our house. Still, Spring is really nice. Our house is surrounded by blooming azaleas, camellias, Baby's Breath, Japanese tulip trees (which smell like lemons!) and green grass. Wisteria is blooming all over town. I wish we had some in our yard too. The flowering Baby's Breath always makes it feel like a special occasion in the front yard. Like a wedding or something.
It was a perfect day to play catch and learn about making sand castles. Soon enough the beach will be our refuge, standing in the warm water up to our chins, with hats on, because everywhere you go is sticky and so hot, you don't know why you bothered to shower.
Here's to a long, mild Spring, and many more beach trips before 2011 winds down!
