One common complaint this time of year in Florida is the amount of pollen in the air (and on your car)..........and it's justifiable! Darla over at http://familyandflowers.blogspot.com/ wrote a blog on pollen a couple of days ago with some pictures : http://familyandflowers.blogspot.com/2009/03/aa-aa-aaa-choo.html
But what many of you north of the Florida/Georgia line don't know is that Spring time is our Fall. Yep.....leaves everywhere! Most of our trees keep their leaves year round, but during spring new leaves sprout and knock off the old leaves. Hence.........Fall! So not only do we have pollen everywhere, but leaves as well. And I mean it's just like October in New England! Well.....maybe not quite the same!
You might be saying, "What's the big deal?" ........I'm telling you there's leaves everywhere! And it's March!
I took this picture this morning.....it looks like Autumn! And I just cleaned the leaves out of this carrot bed a few days ago.
All I need is a little pumpkin soup. And yes, those are my tomatoes on the right.... getting ready!
O.K. these pics have some leaves in them, but my main reason for showing it is to show off my first ever strawberry grown.
