A Ride in Tropical Central Florida

Today I’d like to take you on a drive. I want to get out and enjoy a beautiful day. I like to see the landscaping around residential communities. Palm trees, bushes, and flowers are usually there. Most of today’s photos are from a condo neighborhood.

This community was built around a lake. I love the fountain in the lake. Not only does it look beautiful but moving water doesn’t breed mosquitoes. I just love being around water. Don’t you?

Now it’s time to look at the landscaping.

I hope you have a beautiful day wherever you are.

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.

  4. Carol – yes, I love water. One of the reasons we chose this property in Montana is its proximity to water! Love the tropical flowers, especially the bird of paradise!

    1. I love the Naples area but haven’t been down there since COVID in 2020. I can’t wait to see your future posts – I just love Florida’s natural beauty and you’re great at capturing that. If you are ever further north, let me know I’ll drive to meet you for lunch!

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