Seasonal Change


Today we are going to Muse about the Florida seasons.  If this is your first visit, welcome to Musings. If you have been here before, welcome back. Over time we are going to talk about many things: the past, the present, perhaps the future, travel, art, society and more. Wherever my musing takes me. I hope you will come along with me.

Fine Art America, a company is producing reproductions of my artwork.  The work is available as traditional prints on canvas, paper or metal, but it also available on greeting cards, phone covers, tote bags, shower curtains,  t-shirts and more.  It makes for some very personalized gifts.  Below is the link to the site.  When you click on an image in the site,  a menu of products will appear.  I hope you like it.

Seasonal Change

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall . . . seasons all.  People regulate their lives by them.  Well . . if you are not a Floridian you probably do, but for us here in Florida there are not four seasons. There are only two . . .  warm and mild verses hot and humid.

We are entering the latter.  The trees are sprouting seed pods and greening.  There are flowers on the Royal Poincianas and the trunks of many of our palms show the green of moss.  Most telling is the lack of crowds.  People have gone home.

Our winter visitors have gone home.  The traffic has thinned.  The malls are largely vacant.

Beach Time

Florida is about the beach.  During the winter and early spring it can be an amazing milieu, teeming with people.

Today we played croquet at the club.  Normally on the weekend there are 12 or so players, perhaps as many as 26,  for club games.  This morning there were four of us!   The others . . . out-of-town, gone north, some playing in tournaments.  For the next three months there are a series of tournaments played in the Carolinas, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Maine.  They draw away a lot of people.

We will be heading out to compete in a tournament ourselves, soon.

No Crowds

For those of us in town it means no lines and no crowds.   It means prix fixe menus at many restaurants.  It means no hassle.

It is a good time to be here.
