for the annual Cracker weekend and native plant sale!

There were so many interesting things to see and do

that I will probably make a couple of posts!

It was around 80 degrees and

the azaleas and redbuds were in full bloom!

Look at the turquoise blue water!!!

Looks like you found a great place to spend the day. Thanks for giving me the heads up but Don and I had plans with friends already. Hopefully we can get there next year.

Your mosaics make me homesick for my home in Palm Beach. Oh, how I miss that good old Florida weather about this time each year here in VA. I miss all the green and all the blooming flowers. Your post has brought back lots of memories.

Looks like such fun but I will have to say that I am very envious of the 80 degree weather!! The pictures are so pretty.

Oh, you are so lucky to be in such a lovely place. It is freezing rain here today, with snow on the branches and a chill in the air that goes through your bones. That aqua water peeking through those lovely pink flowers makes me yearn for a warmer place. My daughter and her boyfriend are vacationing in Florida in two weeks. I will show her your gorgeous post to get her ready for heaven.

So pretty! I havent been to Rainbow Springs in YEARS!

Kathy said...

How lovely, there's an arboretum in a town nearby that I am looking forward to walking through soon - our azaleas are not blooming yet...but, Yeah! For Spring!
Thank you for sharing such a lovely place,
Kathy

Mary said...

This looks so beautiful! It was a perfect way to spend an afternoon. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Meri said...

80 degrees sounds marvelous -- it snowed here last week and it's still in the 30s. I'm freezing my tush off.

Brenda Kula said...

Oh my, you get around, girl! I love checking out the flowers. Soon our azaleas will be aglow.

You and your sweet husband do so many wonderful things! Makes me happy to see it. We haven't gotten out much lately...but soon I hope. Looking at the gorgous snow on the mountains is something at least! :) You always show us the most lovely places.
Enjoy every single minute. This is our time of life.. :)
Hugs and love,
Mona
Oh...bought a new baby doll today.
Kind of nervous and am hoping she is ..as nice in person as she looks in her pictures. Reborn dolls are always sort of risky..but I wanted one that was sort of different and this one is. I will send a picture eventually...hope she arrives soon.

What a beautiful day! We almost went to this festival. Isn't the water of Rainbow Springs beautiful?
