Easter in Florida

MET NEROLI IN PERSON LAST MONTH; SHE IS LOVELY.

My wee one and I spent 2 weeks in Central Florida for Easter, it was a much needed break and my first vacation in 5 years;  must do this more often! Here are some botanical/nature pics and aromatically inclined highlights from the trip - with a few cute girl pics interspersed because it is Mom's Day tomorrow! 
Happiness is traveling with a sweet little girl, it makes everything a little more magical.Happy Mother's Day to all who mother.
Florida forests smell different.
Gators in the backyard
Giant Staghorn
Latana growing wild everywhere. I bought the oil once; smells like pickles.
Great Blue Heron
'Gators may be present' - at the children's playground!
It even rained once, for a little while
underwater observation
Cedar tree and crystal clear waters
trumpet flower
meeting mermaids
and finding lizards every where! Hope to be able to return soon, Florida is fun!
