    Nice pic!! We are having a lot of much needed rain here!! Although bad for business, it is good we get the wet stuff now as the Everglades are really dry.

    We're pretty much where we should be for rainfall this season and we're in a nice dry stretch. The roads are slowly drying and the wildflowers are up in a big way. Mustard's usually first, from what I can see, but the magnolias and acacia trees are out, too. When the cherry trees start blossoming, I know true spring isn't far behind.

    For us, spring is when it stops raining for the next 6 months.

    And great shot, Voni.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Definitely should be great weather then. What fun you'll have!

    We've had one day of snow and one day of all day light drizzle soaking in the ground. Other than that, it's been dry. But there was lots of rain in the summer and early fall. I'd expect gorgeous blooms!!

    I'm loving the pictures. Keep them coming!

    First real harbinger of spring - the Red Winged Black Bird. When this bird arrives unhook all the battery tenders.
