Well here we are again in Venice, Florida - to be correct we arrived a month ago but, well, it takes time to sort these photos out.
The beach was still there to greet us, I'm happy to say.
So were the weeds, unfortunately (I'm working on it - watch this space!)
You'll never believe how fast weeds can grow in the hot, humid summer, until you come to Florida. (Western New York in June is bad but nothing like this.)
Though the Mexican clover does make what's left of the lawn look pretty. At this time of year there's quite a carpet of it.
The birds still rule the roost, as it were.
