One afternoon the clouds were so beautiful that I had to stop what I was doing and take photos. Sometimes the sky seems to reach up to heaven. I hope you enjoy them.Read More
Today’s photos are just a small collection of Florida skies around my area. I live on the west coast of Florida northwest of Tampa. Blue skies are the norm here; clouds come and go. I made mosaics of clouds and sky. Enjoy!Read More
One of my favorite linky parties is Sky Watch Thursday. The skies shared cover the range from sunrise to sundown and lots of beauty in between. Today my post is my view of the Florida blue skies over flowers. First is the view from the front yard over my frangipani tree. It was late afternoon and my front yard was in shade. (My house faces east and the sun crosses my house mid day.)Read More
Plumeria is a genus of flowering plants in the dogbane family, Apocynaceae. Most species are deciduous shrubs or small trees. The tropical species are indigenous to Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean, and as far south as Brazil, but are grown as cosmopolitan ornamentals in warm regions. Common names for plants in the genus vary widely but Frangipani or variations on that theme are the most common.
April is still the dry season here in Central Florida with few rainy days and lots of blue skies.Read More
West Pasco County Veterans Walk (All Wars); Re-dedicated November 11, 1986
The War Memorial is also known as West Pasco County Veterans Walk. It is in Sims Park, a attractive park on the Cotee River. I shared a visit to Sims Park last week. Today I’ll share the monument on one side of the park.Read More
Withlacoochee River: The name “Withlacoochee” is derived from one of Florida’s Native American tribes, the Creek. It means “Little Big Water”, which makes sense as both floods and droughts have caused the water levels to rise or drop many times over its history. Another meaning is “crooked river”, which accurately describes the twists and turns it makes on its way towards the Gulf of Mexico.
Close to my home is a wondeful small town, New Port Richey, Florida. I’ve shared photos taken in New Port Richey before. Sims Park has been featured in several posts. Last week I stopped by the park early one morning. It was a beautiful spring day with blue skies, mild temperatures, and low humidity. These days are gold because summer in Florida is really hot and humid.Read More
A few days ago I was waiting at my car for Vickie around 9:20 AM. It was a beautiful day. Unlike a few neighbors, none of my spring flowers are blooming yet. The sky was so beautiful and seemed to reach to the heavens. I had to snap a few photos trying to capture it.Read More
Winter is a time for cold, ice, snow, and often dark, gray skies for many people living in the north. I grew up in Tennessee and moved to Florida in my 20’s to escape the gray. Seasonal Affective Disorder hadn’t even been defined then as that happened in the next decade. I just knew I was happy and more energetic in the Florida sun.
