Rite of Spring

Those who think that there are no seasons in South Florida aren't paying close enough attention. Sure, the changes here aren't as obvious as in more poleward latitudes, but they still occur.

So, every year right around the first day of spring, one of South Florida's favorite exotics, the Yellow Tabebuia (Tabebuia Caraiba) breaks out in its full golden glory. There's also a pink version which is blooming as well. The very dry winter we've had has made this year's display that much more vivid.

Here's a picture from right across the street from 26th Parallel HQ:
