feb 25th in the subtropics
Yes, late afternoon, here in Tallahassee, florida, usa. Very late afternoon, actually, the camera had to deal with fading light. The temperture must have been around the middle 70s.

The subtropical late winter.

But spring has begun! Here in tallahassee, spring often begins about the 10th of febuary and lasts until early May!

The sun is glowing on the trunks of the trees, the azalas are blooming. Cabbage palms and evergreen oak trees.
No wonder so many people move to Florida, in the northern area of the country where I grew up, there was about 80 inches of snow per year, in my 1950s childhood.

Comes with a Price, this beauty: you have to *love* heat!
100 days a year of 90 degrees or more!
