We pass miles of neighborhoods on our way to the Florida Keys, and I think everyone’s got a papaya tree in their backyard. Maybe they just stand out to me because they tower high above the fences and rooftops with big, snowflake-shaped leaves and rows of fruit.
May is my favorite month of the year. I’m looking forward to fishing and snorkeling, spending evenings on the porch, and celebrating a few birthdays. I like making birthday cakes, but baking isn’t much fun when it’s really hot out, so I broke out the ice cream maker instead.
