Mango lovers, behold:Can’t resist a hidden beach trail.And warm sandy feet.Watched our box turtle friend lay some eggs! Looking forward to hatchlings.Lots of orchids blooming around the yard. I think this one was a gift from Jennifer and Dennis.And the screech owls found the owl box, also a gift from Jennifer and Dennis. New path. Jaboticabas are popping. Such a cool fruit and it makes the best jelly.
We loved spending a week with Anna and Alison in our neck of the woods. Stumbled upon a geocache treasure.Added something to the loot and put it back.Wild oranges.A very fuzzy tussock moth caterpillar.Had the best time watching Anna’s soccer games at IMG Academy.
I wrote about the new stone crab regulations in Edible Nature Coast. I had some fascinating conversations with scientists from FWC and Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch, along with a few crabbers willing to talk to me. We’re all hopeful.These months go by too fast.
See you back here in April.
