I was on the road yesterday morning by 7:00 a.m. I stopped for lunch at Cracker Barrel (it's tough eating healthy on the road, and I know that's no excuse) about 11:00 a.m. and finally made it home by 2:30 p.m.
The lush and tropical green of South Florida was gone for sure, but the sun was warm and the temperature in the 60s <happy sigh> and I found subtle but definite signs of spring in my own yard:
One thing I wasn't so pleased to see was this:
Apparently, there were some pretty high winds while I was away, which just ripped my butterfly castle to shreds 🙁 The cocoons appear to be okay, but time will tell. Definitely need to order a new butterfly castle for this year's crop of butterflies, as well as some milkweed for the Monarchs.
Now, it's time to unpack, and get settled back into a routine.
