That Fluffy White Tree
If the Saltbush is blooming, it must be autumn in south Florida!
I think it's very showy and looks quite pretty nestled in among the roadside woodlands. But, it does cause me some respiratory distress as all those fluffy white seeds go flying through the air, causing my asthma to act up.
Luckily, I don't see any as I look around the woods near the house, so I'm feeling thankful for that!
I've been making some more small handmade envelopes out of an old garden journal. I've used them to send seeds to gardening friends and I have a lot of fun in the creating and decorating process.
I also use them to send tea samples out to my pen friends around the world.
Did I ever mention how much I love tea? Well, that's a separate post that would probably go on and on and on... Don't worry, I'll spare you :)
And since I don't have a lot going on in the garden - here's a couple of Sandhill Cranes that I thought were really cute. This photo was taken at a marsh in the area.
I hope you're all enjoying the beautiful weather and the weekend!
