Updates from Florida Estates Winery

Happy Easter.  Happy Passover.  Happy Spring. Or, if you prefer, just Be Happy. Spring is my favorite time of the year.  Not just because of my birthday but because of the “rebirth” of everything.  All of the grapevines are budding out (called “bud-break”) and forming little leaves.

The grass is turning green but not long enough yet to be mowed (yea!). The trees are almost done with the pollen so we can breathe.  Maybe the best season of all.  BTW, am I the only one still not adjusted to daylight saving time?

Our Tip Jar this month is for Florida Skunk Rescue.  Cute, sweet, smart little animals.  They can be litter box trained and make wonderful pets.  Last month’s Tip Jar was for Pasco County Animal Services.  We collected $340.22!  Thank you very much.
