Here are scenes from our Florida yard in November.  So many beautiful flowers blooming all the time, and the baby raccoons are adorable!

    Red passion. Flowers and raccoons were my favorite parts of this blog post. You are blessed with such unique elements of nature in Florida! 🙂

      Yes we are lucky! The red passion flower is our latest addition. It is growing like crazy with the rain this past weekend. The baby raccoons come every day – they are so cute. So many birds today too – we had 17 turkeys, 1 anhinga, 1 cormorant, 1 tricolored heron, 1 great blue heron, 1 great egret, 1 kingfisher, and 2 sandhill cranes. Florida wildlife is great!
