I think that spring is the best season in Florida. The weather is typically beautiful, and it's the best time for outdoor activities.
Last Saturday we went to the Botanical Gardens in Largo with Abby (aka the crazy dog). We had never been there before and were really impressed. There are several different areas, including some nature trails and a wedding garden.There was also a long trail by the water, which had adirondack chairs in a few spots. It's definitely a great place to sit with a book and relax. Abby had a great time walking around and nosing some flowers. We also saw some turtles, plenty of lizards, and some fish.
The only surprising thing was how empty it was...unfortunately, I don't think that many people take advantage of the outdoors, and how enjoying it can be.
