Unless of course you try to cross the road!

I took a Saturday morning trip over to our community library and saw this Ibis crossing

Your postcards are fun, but they won't tempt me away from the California coast. Your water is warmer, but on my only trip to Florida, I remember the air being too hot for me.

Everyone I know is going to Florida or has been. I'll get there one of these days, but for now I have a time traveling around to all the blogs! Love all your pictures and the lovely gifts from your friends and the cloud pictures and your book cases... my husband just built a bookcase for me. I just love it. I'll write soon.

ImagiMeri said...

Well I got hot and humid here in AZ, but it's sure not as green as your pretty location. I love the picture as your header........it actually reminds me of California.

Hugs,
Meri

Great shots of the Ibis, I was surprised to see the Ibis in the Florida neighborhoods. Love the beaches and wonderful postcard shots. Have a happy week ahead!

Lavender Cottage said...

Very tempting Diane, but we'll wait until it's cold and snowy here and then we'll really enjoy it!

Vee said...

"Hot, humid, and wonderful"? Hmmm...Hahahahaha... To each her own, Diane. Gosh you're a great spokeswoman for Florida. Love the postcards. They couldn't be nicer.

Susie said...

Humid??? I don't want my hair to frizz....just kidding. I really hate humid any more, what with my old lady furnace running. :) xoxo,Susie

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Crossing, or merging, what a very cool bird to have living near you to even be close to a road! Happy week~

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Thanks for sharing your corner of the world. We don't have the ibis crossing the road here, but do have the geese and ducks on occasion. Love the pretty blues in the post cards.

Cherry's Prairie Primitives said...

Love your beautiful postcards!!

ellen b said...

My daughter and her husband were just in Florida. I have never been to the great state. Maybe sometime in the future. Nice collages...

Diane Writes said...

As a person who lives in the city, I'm often deprived of parks, greeneries and the refreshing view. Sigh... Thanks for your blog for my daily to weekly dose of refreshing and relaxing views.

Thank you for linking up namemate :)

Have a great week ahead!

Love your postcards and the ibis is comical. I sent some friends to Weeki Watchee and they said it was closed. I hope it isn't closed permanently. xo Diana

Lorrie said...

Crossing or merging, that is the question. Fun photos. Glad you're enjoying the weather.

Jill said...

Florida is wonderful!

It's really hot here too!

Maureen Wyatt said...

Right now I'd like to be anywhere that it isn't raining! It's hot one day and cold the next, but the rain is ever present. Great pictures!

Karen said...

You've got Ibis, we've got chickens :-)

It's hot and humid here too... you take it better than I do. Ugh.

Julie Corbisiero said...

Hi it looks so pretty there. It is a lot different from where I live! My mom has a house in Florida that she goes to stay in the winter. I love everything that you share with all of us. Take care.

I have never been to Florida. I should put it on my to-do list.

Patty said...

Looks like a good beach to love. We are off to the Bahamas and I am excited to be on the beach too!

This is a beautiful beach.

I seem to remember an old movie, "Where the Boys Are", that had mermaids swimming!

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

What a sight!!!
We were in Florida the week before last and it rained the whole time, never needed my sunscreen or sun glasses. :(
Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!
