Living in cold Canada, it’s easy to forget some people have it hot. Especially right after we’ve had a big snowstorm – half a metre (over a foot) of white wet stuff in the past couple of days. So I thought I’d share the view from our back door. Meanwhile, my brother David has sent a reminder that not all trees covered in white are covered in snow. You can see his proof – he planted this eucalyptus on his Florida farm 15 years ago as a nectar source for his bees. The tree is flowering (and buzzing) brilliantly partly because central Florida had 15 cm (6 inches) of rain in the past week. And partly because that’s the way it is in the Sunshine State.
