It’s officially hurricane season in Florida and there is no shortage of wind or rain. During a typical Florida summer we get a rain shower every afternoon, for about 20 minutes and nearly at the same time everyday. As I walk around the lake today, the wind is strong and constant. A downpour last night left everything very damp with a wonderfully earthy aroma coming from every direction, as the sun heats up the damp ground. I can’t actually photograph the wind for you, just the objects that it blows around, like the pages of my notebook above. I took this short video with my camera to give you a sense of the breeze as it whips through the cypress trees that grow along the lake. About 6 seconds in you can see one of the many birds that lives here, flitting from one tree to the other. I hope you’re enjoying the weather and nature where you are! This is June.
