A Feast of February Flowers

Pretty peas

I guess y’all have discovered by now how much I like alliteration. I just can’t resist it! I’ve been adjusting to life back at the beach and trying not to miss my mountains even though I love the beach too. One of the best things, in my opinion about late winter in North Florida is all the flowers. All these pretty blooms are in my garden right now- Lucky! So this post is a special shout out for everyone somewhere where the flowers are still sleeping. Enjoy!
