For me: shorts and flipflops while the FLidians are wearing coats and mitts ^_^ We are also known to drink copious amounts of iced tea cuz of the awful stuff they call iced tea up here oops said that with my outside voice
Mainland FL I've only been to Miami and Orlando. Yes shorts and sandals for me weather permitting and regardless where I go at night it's always a dressy jacket and boots and a good pair of jeans.
Key West on the other hand, been there numerous times and all I could say is ... well, I rather not. LOL! We'll keep this conversation G-rated.
D-nut so true about FLidians wearing coats. My friend that lives in Key West brings out the comforter when temp goes down to the 60's.
It's true and very amusing to those of us in cooler climates.
Haaayyy! 72 is freezing! LOL I get cold easily but I looove the "cooler" weather and "winter".
Yes, picking out tourists vastly varies on time of year. Our winter, as previosuly stated, they are the only ones wearing shorts while we wear coats. Summer is harder...sometimes you can tell by the flaming pink/red sunburn.
72 is heavenly!
When the steering wheel on a car becomes an instrument of tortue it's way too hot for me and those supermarkets are more like walk-in freezers!
Nice photos as always Al. Yes, it's the tourists wearing shorts down here in the winter, the sunburns and the sandals, sometimes even worn with socks. It's laying out on the beach when its under 70 degrees and actually going IN the ocean during the winter. It's the t-shirts/sweatshirts that have the name of a Florida city on them. It's the wild crazy driving you encounter on the streets. It's the picture taking in front of palm trees, hibiscus or other tropical plants. It's the people in the line at ice cream shops during the winter. It's all good though and we love having you down here in the winter. Tourism is what our state relies on and the number one source of revenue.
Don't tell me my Daytona shorts that are 20 years old are out of style!
YOU GO GIRL PIRL! My Alaska fav shorts are bright tourquoise with 'Kiss My Halibut' printed across the back.
Oooh MG! Where are the fashion police when you need them??!!
Those shorts would be ok in South Florida dahlianut. LOL I wouldn't recommend wearing those anywhere North of Lake Okeechobee (that big lake in the middle of South Florida). They'd probably make ya put some pants on.
Thanks, D'nut. Love that logo for your shorts! Do you wear them as you lead the dahlia parade?
Tex - I just can't bring myself to wear those lovely straw hats, pearls, high heels and flowery wispy dresses as I slave away in the garden tending 2,000 daylilies, about as many lilies, and lots of dahlias, hydrangeas, Japanese irises and astilbes. The neighbors call the gardens "A & E", an abbreviated form for portions of the body they see as they pass and see us hard at work.
Luvly spotty lily pirl! Red satin pjs for the Wakening of the Dahlias Festival parade ^_^
How could I have forgotten the red satin pj's? I must be getting old.
Beautiful, Tex. Love the color coordination.
We have Neve almost every Saturday but he works mainly with Jack on big garden projects. He has done weeding for us and I am so grateful. Neve is a hunk but a young (24 years old) and shy guy.
Yes, it's Salmon Star. The lilies have been gorgeous this year, which reminds me that I came in to get my camera and then continue working, not sit here enjoying myself!
I sang to my lilys earlier this morning trying to get them to open.
Okay, I have racked my brain most of the day...what is the E part of A&E?
Beautiful! Your singing worked the magic!
Great dahlia as well. They would look so nice together.
Wow-that IS pretty! The form and color are perfect! Very cheerful!
glad you like her I love her she is a queen in my yard along with my hollyhocks and all my other flowers sissy70
