Sunshine, Blue Skies, and Balmy Breezes ... (otherwise known as the perfect spring day)

Happy Saturday, everyone!  It's me, Tucker ...

Yesterday was all sunshine and blue skies, with the added benefit of a lovely breeze that helped keep the sun from getting too hot.  (Unfortunately, yesterday was a workday, so we didn't get too much time to really enjoy it.  So I hope that this weekend will be more of the same!) 

You know, here in Tampa ... it's a lovely time of year ... right now.  But the truth is, we don't have spring like other places in the country have spring.  We don't have the whole daffodils springing up from damp green earth thing going on down here, although the azaleas are lovely right now. 

In fact, the "seasons" here often seem nonexistent, though a true native Floridian such as myself (a rare breed to be sure) can discern the difference.  But you do have to pay attention.  For example, our "spring" such as it is, can be rather short - sometimes it seems that as soon as we "spring forward" and start getting more hours in the day to do stuff like go to the dog park after dinner when it's still light out, Mr. Sunshine (and I don't mean Matthew Perry) seems to get significantly hotter ... and sometimes he gets so hot that he seems downright angry and almost as though he thinks we have misbehaved down here and he needs to punish us.  I can't figure out why, because I am always a very good boy, and though they're not as good as me, my brothers and sisters are pretty good, too. 

So Mr. Sunshine ... if you're listening ... we'd like to have several more weeks of this current weather, please.  And if you oblige me today ... I think it'll be a perfect day for cruising with the sunroof open ...


Have a beautiful day, everyone!

Oh we're so jealous. In NYC it seemed like the weather was getting warmer and spring may have been well on its way - and then we had a crazy hail and snow storm. And now it's back to 30 degree weather.

And we haven't been by in a while and LOOOOVVVVEEEE your new header picture. LOVE it. LOVE LOVE LOVE it.

We don't like extremes - too hot or too cold. But we don't have a say in the weather. At least right now the weather is nice, very nice. Well, except for the storm. Oh, and the tornado watch. Still, we're not freezing or sweltering.

Enjoy your spring.

Love and licks, Winnie

Hi Tucker, we stopped by to say hi and to thank you for visiting our blog. We are very happy to meet you.

Our humans love spring but here in the Midwest, it seems to be very short too. We had a few good days last week and today it is snowing here. So much for the hyacinths that decided to bloom early. But the snow won't last long, spring will return, but by early May summer and its heat and humidity will be upon us. That's when we sibes take to the a/c in the house.

We will be back to read more, thanks again for visiting us.

Here's hoping you get lots more nice weather.
Here in Melbourne, it's nice one day, not so nice the next - very unpredictable and we've had more of our share of rain which was good after the drought but means we get shorter walks !

Terry said...

Hey Tucker, our 4 seasons are winter, winter, summer, winter.

OKcats said...

Hi Tucker! We're glad you had a perfect spring day. We were pretty chilly here, though we got some rain that we desperately need. Our friends just north of us got SNOWS, so we're going to just be thankful for what we did get :)

Love, Fuzzy and Zoe

Hi there Tucker, thanks for stopping by. This is a very beautiful blog. I really admire blogs that are not only "cute" but look great visually. That header photo is gorgeous - you are a very handsome fellow. And as a bonus, it was interesting to learn about spring in FL - I'd always wondered about that!

Sounds like a great day. I hope we have a nice spring as well. :)
