Spring Is (Almost) Here

New vigorous growths like this are springing out from all these longan trees in Miami. It is always exciting to see if flowers will show up at this moment. These tropical fruit trees do not bear every year, and they may skip a couple of years. The only way to know for sure is to inspect these every day and hope for a big new crop. These are all leaves, so far...

Hello, I just found your blog when an image from it came up on a Google search. I lived in Miami all my life until the age of 40. I am enjoying your pictures and commentary VERY much and look forward to checking in on your blog regularly.

Last week it was fall with trees dropping their leaves and this week spring has sprung with many trees blooming and putting out new leaves.
Thank you for sending Zann my way.
