Fanning Springs State Park, Florida

I am a huge fan of Florida's State Parks. This past week I visited Fanning Springs and was awed by it's beautiful arching oaks and sturdy cabbage palms. Big mullets were cruising the clear spring. The park was quiet with only a couple of families swimming and sunning.  Here are a few of the photos for you to enjoy. Be on the look out for paintings to come....

Persimmon Trees in the South

Every year in September the Persimmon trees surprise me with their bright orange fruit.  Driving along I see these trees in what seems like every other yard, around old buildings, randomly near fences and in fields.  The rest of the year they are gnarled leafy innocuous parts of the landscape, but this time of the year they are lush and glorious and not to be ignored.

Labor Day

I hope that you are able to rest and relax this Labor Day.  This holiday reminds me of the vacation places I have visited.  St. Augustine, Florida comes to mind with it's old landmarks and quiet seaside presence.  Enjoy your day!
