Lignum Vitae

These are Lignum Vitae (ironwood, tree-of-life) blossoms. They are about as big, maybe just a wee bit bigger than apple blossoms. It is beautiful when a tree has a lot of blossoms.  This tree is in Oceanfront Park, behind City Hall, where we often take walks.

Little Blue Heron

This bird is resting on mangrove roots.  I thought it was an egret until I got the picture on the computer and saw the greenish legs.  I had to look it up to discover that it is a juvenile Little Blue Heron.  The photo is not too sharp, but you can see that the legs are green – ish.
