Wesley Chapel, Florida (high 88, low 63)
I am up early enjoying another cool morning. Al was out the door by 6ish, to do some of his early commercial pest control accounts. He only has a few more months, and then he will retire completely.
We moved to a different campsite yesterday. We are still at Quail Run Rv Resort, which is just outside Tampa. Now that the snowbirds are gone or leaving soon, there are more sites available and we wanted one of the coveted sites with no sun on the patio side.
We splurged and chose a perimeter site that backs up to the woods. It’s so much nicer with no one in our back yard. It’s also right at the end of one street so you just drive up the street and back straight back into our site. There are some nice trees beside us that give some shade but aren’t too big with branches hanging over the coach. After the little storm and tornado went through here last year, I have become more aware of large trees over me.
There a lot of birds around, including Bluebirds, and Al has already set up the birdfeeders. It’s nice having the windows open so that I can wake up to the sounds of birds singing.
There are a lot of deer in the woods behind us, so hopefully we’ll be able to enjoy watching them from our patio. This campground is our home base. It’s cheaper to pay the monthly rate and have our site available when we want it. The rates triple in the winter, so we find it doesn’t cost us anymore to just keep the site year round. That way, we have a site if Mom should have any medical problems and we need to be here.
April is the month I most enjoyed when we lived up in Georgia. That’s when our beautiful wisteria would bloom along with the azaleas and dogwood.
I always remember how beautiful our place was in the spring.
We loved our beautiful piece of paradise in Georgia, but we don’t regret selling the house.
I was just reminiscing, and thought I’d share some pictures from our beautiful property in Georgia.
Notice who is watching the birds?
A curious squirrel.
Of course spring brings bird nests. These are 4 baby bluebirds that grew up and successfully fledged their nest. We had a bluebird house that you could open the top and peek in. We monitored them for parasites and kept the house baffled to prevent snakes or raccoons from getting to the babies.
Daddy feeding one of the babies.
A just fledged baby bluebird. Notice that cute little stubby tail? When they first fledge, their tails are pretty short, but they soon grow to normal size.
Okay, enough reminiscing.
