Spring Afternoon in Florida

Last Sunday afternoon I spent time outside enjoying the beautiful, mild day. Highs have been in the low 80’s this week with low humidity and beautiful blue skies. It’s a brilliant color that makes me happy.

Today’s views are all from my front yard. This is the perfect time of year to enjoy yourself outside.

My frangipani trees (plumeria) are getting new leaves. The flowers will start to bloom within a few weeks.Then they’ll have new flowers daily until September. By mid October they lose their leaves and go dormant for 6 months.

In the front flower bed the rosemary has almost doubled in size since last year. The white amaryllis plants have several huge buds. I hope to be sharing large white blooms in a few days.

Thanks for sharing my afternoon. Happy Spring!

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. All these are lovely photos from Florida. It is always great to look around in an afternoon. Beautiful Hibiscus flower too..

  2. Thank you for sharing your springtime pictures Carol. What a lovely neighbourhood you have there. It’s dull and dreary here today, even though it is supposed to be spring and blue skies like your own.

  3. What a cute cottage and beautiful garden. I love it when trees and flowers began to breath in spring. Your frangipani trees (plumeria) is a perfect example of how powerful nature really is. These trees know when it’s safe for them to bloom and be beautiful amd when to rest. Many humans could follow that example. Thank you for sharing your afternoon with #aclwcc. Hugs. Pinned & Tweeted.

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