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!
