What’s In Bloom-Florida Style

Where to start…..It has been a long couple of week’s. April is almost at an end and with the rain we’ve had lately, the whole state is in full bloom. I don’t really know what it is about buds and blooms that make me so happy- Maybe it’s the renewal of life, maybe it’s the pretty colors or iridescent hues. Regardless, I want to explore, discover, and shareย  every line on every petal up close and personal. Well maybe not every one. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have not been out and about lately, or even photographed many things due to an eye issue that I hope is healing. It has been several very long weeks since I have touched my camera, or even edited waiting photos. With that being said…I am going to share the first thing I have been physically able to photograph-my blooming flowers- but be forewarned I have many gator photos to come. ๐Ÿ™‚

As always, I hope you enjoy these as much as I do/did. ๐Ÿ™‚

April 1st- and Me All Out of Jokes

Happy April Fool’s Day from the Treasure Coast. Remember to err on the side of safety–too many things can go bad way too fast…. ask Google. Celebrate safe.

Pollen Season is finally over in Florida; make way for the rainy season and 90 degree temperatures. Way back in Marchย  ๐Ÿ™‚ I came upon a great opportunity to see some gators up close and close to home. My friends and family, who visit, will often ask if I can show them and alligator or a bear…..yes we have bears in Florida. Upon requests like these one could just go to Gatorland (totally The Best)- but its nice when you don’t have to drive into the Big City (Orlando).

So imagine my surprise when I finally went to one of the places, I always say I am going to go and Boom! Small, medium and large- White City Park has them all. This place was enchanting with its blooming bottle brush and Hong Kong Orchids draped in Spanish Moss. I immediately fell in love with its winding waterways, beautiful birds, and White Koi fish. But be careful because in this place gators swim freely. (No fences of any kind) It also has quite a few pic-nick spots and I even spotted one nervy fellow, napping under one of the many pavilions. EEK!

I will try not to overshare as I always do– I have so many photos that I would like to share, I am not sure what I will post next. Until then ,I hope as always you enjoy the photos and adventure. ๐Ÿ™‚
