Because it is still freezing cold in Virginia and because it is snowing again ruining the plans for my day, I’m posting some lovely images of warmer places and wishing for better weather. Last week I took a two day trip to see family in southwest Florida. On one of them it rained a lot, but we still enjoyed Sarasota Jungle Gardens. I held snakes and a baby alligator, watched birds perform tricks and fed flamingos by hand. It’s a pretty cool place and has been there since 1939.
