Where settlers came in search of gold, they found instead a golden grove. Trees burst with fruit, for sun is bold where settlers came in search of gold. No precious ore, but wealth untold; rich landscape is the treasure trove! Where settlers came in search of gold, they found instead a golden grove. Inspired by Robert Butler's "Golden Grove" Written March 5, 2015, for the Florida Nature Contest of Rhonda Johnson-Saunders

That was hot and humid with mosquito's. :) Don't mind me, I'm just a miserable Minnesotan who know's this reality all too well in the summer time. :) A very beautifully penned poem Andrea.

I agree, Robert. It's so humid in Florida. I grew up in Iowa next to the mighty Mississippi, so I know all about humidity and mosquitoes.
