Winter in Florida is Magical

Two Thursdays ago I went stomping through the urban woods with my environmental writing colleagues. For class, no less!

Boyd Hill preserve is tucked away on the south side of the city. Standing on the lake, you can see our modest skyline and a great blue heron in the same glance.

Perhaps the most interesting talk we had that day was the scrub and pine and saw palmetto landscape is not that “exciting.” The landscape here is not lush like the Keys or the Everglades. But where I come from, everything in February is dead and the sky is gray. This might as well be heaven.

    Great photos. Freezing cold here in the UK at the moment so they warmed me a little 🙂

      Thanks Pete! It’s “cold” here today too, if it makes you feel better 🙂

        Oh, no. That shattered the illusion. 🙂
