Wild Flowers

this weekend while driving back to Jacksonville, the medians for about half a mile were covered in a blanket of magenta.

wild flower seeds had been sprinkled earlier this year by FDOT, Florida Department of Transportation

it was beautiful and really made the drive there much more pleasant. it amazes me how such a small thing can cheer me up.

I believe the flowers were a variety of phlox which comes in numerous colors.


you better belize it.

I just got back from Belize.

  • Belize's official language is English
  • Belize was known as British Honduras until 1981 when Belize gained its independence from Britain
  • The natives of Belize speak creole.(a broken form of English, which I would say was very broken)
  • 9 stop lights in the entire country, and only 8 of them work.
  • Belize has the 2nd largest continuous barrier reef in the world (2nd to Australia's Great Barrier Reef)
