Weather in Florida

You never know what the weather will bring here in "sunny" Florida.
After a pretty cold winter last year, we have really had a nice, mild winter this year.  The tulip trees have all bloomed out nicely, and my azalea bushes are about half-way covered with beautiful pink, red, and white flowers.  I noticed the other day that even the bridal bush is showing some white blossoms.  
But, alas, last night we had a hard freeze.  This morning I had to break the ice in the chickens' water dish.  My beautiful azaleas are a bit droopy.  But that's the story of weather here in Florida.  There's an old saying going around that if you don't like the weather here, just wait around a few minutes and it will change.  Tonight we're supposed to have another hard freeze, 23 degrees.  Tomorrow night, a mere 58 degrees.  Go figure!

  2. I knew you would have something pretty to share Regina! I love Florida, been there a couple times, but it is an all day plane travel event when we come from Oregon! Hope to get there in 2013.

  5. It sounds like your weather is as wacky as New Jersey's. Your azaleas are pretty! I was impressed with your big heirloom tomato, last post. It rivals our Jersey tomatoes, which everyone brags about! This winter was mild, and some herbs didn't ever freeze and die off. But the daffodils are just starting to show some leaves. Have fun planning this years garden! I am your newest follower, I'm glad I found you at the Cottage Garden Party!
