Ladies and gentleman, I do think spring has arrived!
Although it isn’t spring yet, at least by the calendar, a drive through the beautiful Furman campus has crocus and daffodils in bloom, lots of vibrant pansies mixed in with flowering kale (which I want to do next year) and tulips (not in bloom) and a couple trees covered in pink flowers.
We got lots of rain the last couple days. My pansies in a couple small planters are blooming, although some look a little dismal, but still fun to see.
Both Bob and I have been really tired the last few days. The beds in Mexico are known for how hard they are. Ours weren’t too bad but I know for two weeks we did not sleep well so I think we are getting caught up on sleep now that we are home. Good thing we can take naps and go to bed early and sleep late.
These flamingos were in a little park at our resort in Mexico. Their colors were beautiful and were they ever noisy!
We saw lots of creatures in Mexico, some at our resort, and some at Xaret National Park. Below is a link to the photos. Read the captions to learn more about where the photos were taken. Viewer warning – there are some photos of iguanas and crocodiles. No snakes.
