Mondays are for Memories – February 2011

In honor of it not getting out of the 30’s today (along with some cold drizzly rain) here in Livingston, TX and the pretty horrible weather happening across most of the country, here are some warm Florida memories from 4 years ago!

This Month’s Florida – February 21, 2011

We’re not surprised by bright green iguanas in the bushes,

(For a critter that doesn’t actually move all that fast, I was having a terrible time getting a good picture of him. I’ll blame the bad lighting, OK?)

They spend a lot of time with their noses in the dirt and leaves looking for food, so it’s not a surprise that when he finally got close enough for a flash picture, I managed to get it with an inappropriately placed leaf!

So that’s a snapshot of flora and fauna here in Central Florida. And while it’s quite a different Florida than what we enjoyed last month, we’re finding great beauty in this area also.
