Our first cool morning since summer

This morning we woke, got showered, ate breakfast and took our dog for his walk. I actually had to wear a sweater for the first time in months. It was a cool 65 Degrees. It is the coolest it has been in months. That may not seem cool to some people. But when you have had 80 to 98 degrees for months, it is cool, and it was amazing. We were actually able to open up the house and get fresh cool air throughout. We have had the air conditioner running for months.

I have been in the house working on jewelry for my shop and on the computer non stop for days, maybe weeks. I have lost track of time. For the first time in months I actually went somewhere today besides the grocery store. With my mask on, I went to Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota. It was incredibly beautiful. So many different flowers and trees and gardens to look at. I had such a wonderful time. If you haven’t been there and you are in the area, you should go. Especially if you like trees, plants, and flowers. It was such a relaxing day. I took so many pictures. I will post a few here. There was a couple of really amazing Australian Banyan trees. One of them must have been a couple hundred years old by looking at the roots.

There were a few waterfalls.


We walked around for about an hour and a half. There were also some beautiful flowers and butterflies. The weather was perfect.
