Goodbyes and hellos today. Goodbye to our sweet Wesley Chapel family as the work and school week began. Hello to my mother's brother and his wife in Punta Gorda. For Tal and me another goodbye there was followed by wonderful reconnection with our hello to a dear friend in Lakewood Ranch, wintering there from Philadelphia.
Florida's spring is significantly ahead of South Carolina's. The maples seem to be in full bloom, showing a deep red. It's the more local flora, however, that has claimed my attention, in particular, the palms and palmettos.
