Friday Meanderings

Spring is busting out all over here on the Nature Coast.

This is Bridal Wreath Spirea.  (At least I think that’s what it is) I’ve never planted it because it only has flowers for a few weeks and then looks like a scraggly bush the rest of the year.  This year it’s everywhere!  Just blooming like crazy all along the roads and paths.

My white azaleas are the same way.  Never have they been so beautiful.  I’m just guessing, but maybe these bushes needed that cold snap back in December to produce such lush flowers.

How about the Olympics?  I love the Winter version.  Any sport where the participants have to wear shiny pointy weapons on their feet and go really fast has gotta be fun to watch!  And then there’s curling.  And skiing.  Okay.  I could go on and on.

“Cocktail Hour for the Tower” was a huge success.  And a lot of fun.  Now we can turn our full attention to the 2nd Annual Old Homosassa Community Day on April 7th.  If you want a booth it’s only $20!!! What a deal!

Next event in Old Homosassa is the 18th Annual Luminary Art Walk on Friday, March 2nd.  We always try to make it to the art walk.  Lots of fun.

Okay, that’s it for me!

Have a great weekend!



Friday Meanderings

This was a beautiful week. Busy but beautiful.

Here’s a hawk that’s using my bird feeder as his bird feeder.




So, like I said.  This hawk is using my bird feeder for dinner.  Yesterday when I went out to fill up the feeder he was sitting on top of it and I had to chase him away.

Doves–you need to move to a new untended feeder!

This guy was actually watching a snake that was coiling around our deck. And I would show you pics but I promised a friend (from ND) that I would never put a snake snap on this site again. Because she’s terrified of them. Not that she actually reads the blog anymore.

But a promise is a promise.

So if you want to see the cool snake photos you’ll have to go to my other blog’s photo page,

I do have some nice shots of a Monarch Butterfly right here!

And an update on the stage for the Homosassa Arts, Crafts, and Seafood Festival–It’s done!  Just needs to be moved into place!

So what’s up this weekend?

Sarasota Slim will be at the Shed on Sunday at 2 pm. Very cool band.

Besides that, we’ll be hanging out on the Nature Coast. It’s a laid back weekend for us!

Have a great weekend!
