I love living in Miami. Our “winter” is nothing like the winters of New York that I grew up in. South Florida has a tropical climate—meaning average temperatures are above 65 degrees and there are only two seasons (wet and dry). Miami has more rainfall and thunderstorms of any US city. Remember, climate is what we expect, but weather is what we get, so day-to-day weather will vary from the norm sometimes. Tropical climate not only means year-round beach days, it also means really cool plants grow here. Here’s a slide show of what’s been blooming around here lately!
