Photo Adventures with Curiosity and Learning

April 21, 2010:Florida Power and Light

Ben picked me up about 8am to drive down to the Florida Power and Light project. They have been doing quite a bit of herbicide work and plantings. Last year - the place was overrun with non-native plants and undesirables such as cat tails and razor grass. This year - what a change. And lots of alligators in the little ponds.
