My Favorite Flower & Nature Photos from 2019

Last week I shared the Top Posts of 2019 which were based on readers visits and Link Party features.  Today I’m sharing some of my favorite photos from the last year. Traditionally I have only included flowers in the garden or in a bouquet.  If you’ve visited me before you probably know flowers are one of my great loves.  This year I’m also including a few sunsets and beautiful skies, another great love. I’m now posting so many nature and travel posts that I felt it was necessary to expand my favorites post.  I hope you enjoy the journey through 2019 photos!

I was raised in Tennessee but have lived in Florida for many years. Love my small home in the Tampa Bay area and its developing garden. My decorating style is eclectic - some vintage, some cottage, all with a modern flair. Pursuing a healthier lifestyle. Spent many years in social services but am happily retired.

  1. some of these are real gems, Carol. In fact, I think they all are. I remember some specifically — the zinnias, Cranbrook, Myrtle — and it’s good to see them all again!

  2. Wonderful summary of your 2019. The blue door of Granbrook Garden is a great shot. Wishing you a good photo year 2020 too!

  3. Carol – I know it must have taken you quite some time to select the finalists for this post. A glorious compilation to be sure. I particularly enjoyed Lettuce Leaf Park, Heather’s June Garden and the blue door peeking out at Cranbrook Gardens. I am so grateful that you have shared this beauty with everyone at Mosaic Monday this week!

  4. It is actually not fair to choose favorites, because these captures are all winners! But maybe because we see flowers from you all the time, I choose for the landscapes -they’re stunning Carol! Many thanks for sharing with All Seasons this review of beauty! Have an inspiring week:)

  5. Oh my goodness!! You have some very breathtaking photos. They leave me speechless. Thank you!! Happy day to you!!

  6. Your photos are great! Your beautiful Cranbrook Garden photo led me to your post. I’ve not heard of this place. Hoping to visit, if time allow, when visiting family in Michigan. Visiting from You’re the Star. 🙂

  7. Ahhhh to have flowers all year around, but I guess it wasn’t meant to be or we wouldn’t enjoy them as much!. Thank you for sharing . They’re beautiful.

  8. Pretty flowers!! I pinned this! Thanks so much for linking up with me at my #UnlimitedMonthlyLinkParty 8, this party will be open until January 26.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
