Springtime in Florida!

I feel very blessed to live in Florida and Springtime is especially beautiful this year.

I went to the farmer’s market again last week and this time I hopped out of the car to take photos across from the ‘action’, looking out over the golf course.

Hubby came with me this time and took a quick pic of me, too.

Oh such a beautiful spring - the photos are lovely. Your mosaic should be a postcard for Florida.

I noticed the foot traffic only sign - and the bike. Great shot.

Enjoy your spring my friend.

Oh my goodness - how beautiful! That really brightened my morning, as we don't quite have spring here yet. It was 31 degrees this morning, but sunny. Have a wonderful week, my friend in Florida :)

Temps are milder but we are in for a week of rainy , it's still so beautiful up here. The dogwood trees are blooming, they are everywhere, along the roads, in the woods, it is so nice and it's getting greener by the day.

Have a wonderful springtime week my friend.

Hugs

Spring has arrived for us too and I'm looking forward to my spring bulbs.
That's a nicely landscaped golf course and at first I thought you were on the bike seen in one of the photos. :-)
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Diane.

I have never been to Florida. It looks like you are having a beautiful Spring. So many pretty flowers and great colors.

sandy said...

Bright blue sky, lush green grass, and colorful flowers...gorgeous! The weather just turned warm this week so we have to wait for the flowers! But we DO have the blue sky and some green grass poking up a bit. Just got back from Panama City Beach, Florida where we had unseasonably warm weather! Loved it!

Debbiedoos said...

That's my dream to be a snow bird someday. I agree Florida this time of year is beautiful! Gorgeous photos you shared.

Marcia Pilar said...

We have it so good, my friend. I agree that spring is quite lovely this year. I typically don't like it because the storms are approaching, but I've decided to enjoy each and every season. That, and I've learned to pop in my earphones and listen to music when the thunder starts to roar. Ugghh...eeeek. Almost 50 years living here and NOW I'm afraid of thunder. teehee
Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures with us.
