Wild Yellow Daisies On The Island

Those who frequent my Blog are accustomed
to all the photos I take each summer on 
Honeymoon Island, Florida.  Not far from our
home, it is a favorite go-to place to get away
from the city.  Spring on the island is more 
beautiful than ever this year.
Wild yellow daisies are scattered all over, and
I was in heaven taking photos.  The island, left
to it's natural beauty, is paradise like.

The waters of the Gulf Of Mexico were calm
on this day......waters clapping against the shore
and bird life sounds were music to my ears.

Hope your having a blessed week....  Dee Dee

Last summer's Mandevilla stayed in our
Florida garden all winter long.  The leaves
remained green and it seemed to go dormant.
Early spring, I fertilized it.  For the past several
days it has produced more blooms than ever
before.  I couldn't be happier.

Have a sweet ole' weekend, everyone.  Dee Dee

A Butterfly

We've spent a lot of time in the 
garden this week.

Today, we addressed the 
palm trees situation.
It took the tree-trimmers 
a short time to transform
two of our tall palm trees. 
 They were scrappy looking, 
with droopy fronds
 and heavy seed pods.  
We got the bad
news about the tallest palm. 
 It is too tall to climb
and needs to come down. 
When the cost was 
mentioned, we sighed
and agreed to talk
about it
another day.  

In the meantime, 
we are contented to
trim and plant flowers...some
 that will attract sweet

Hope your enjoying
lovely spring weather
 in your part of
the world.....

I'm glad you stopped by......Dee Dee

Beautiful Spring

The grass has turned 
and coastal winds
 are again 
carrying sounds
 of lawn mowers.

The colors 
and fragrance of
have returned
 to my garden and 
I can be found 
protective gloves,
planting seeds
 and spraying 
for black spot
my Roses. 

 The song of 
can be heard
muffled leaves 
while they sit
on newly formed

I'm thanking God 
sunny warm
all that is
 the season of

Lovin' Spring

I love the white Mandevilla blooms....

Give them a good drink of water each
afternoon and they thrive.

A Spring Day In Florida

Tall palms and our Hawaiian Ty plants.......
are loving the sunshine.

Our Snow Bush is one of my favorite things
in the garden.

Close up of the Snow Bush......pool waters
are almost warm enough for swimming.
I'm glad you stopped by.
Have a blessed Lord's day, everyone........Dee Dee

Pink Geraniums

I've had major disappointment this spring
looking for this shade of Geraniums. So,
I'm sharing these photos from 
another year. My how I do wish I could
find this same color....my favorite when it
comes to Geraniums. 

Early morning shadows across the garden
seem best for photos and such a lovely
peaceful time of the day.

Hope everyone's having a beautiful weekend.
Glad you stopped by.....Dee Dee

Mandevilla Blooming

My pink Mandevilla has 
 been popping out with all sorts of
buds over the past week. 
 Loads of rain and lovely sunshine
 spurred the process along

This morning the first bloom
could be seen from my window.

I've had a friendship with my garden
for a good many years now.  It is
equally splendid winter, summer and
now spring.

Sweet blessings this day.....Dee Dee
