Walk Outside with me!

When we got home from a hike yesterday, I walked into our back yard and took photos of the row of beautiful azaleas that are in full bloom next to the golf course.

 

It's one of the reasons we chose to retire here in Florida and in this community.


And I'm thankful every time I look outside.

 

I hope you enjoy a beautiful day too.

I’m joining Beautiful Sunday and
Lavender Cottage for Mosaic Monday.

Delightful! There's never a time when there aren't flowers in your corner, is there? Soothes the spirit, I'm sure.

Such a beautiful sight in winter. ;)

I would love to take a walk with you, sweet Diane :) Lovely views and a welcome sight since all I see is snow...although I don't mind since I love snow.

Enjoy the week. Hugs!

It's bitter cold here / love your post...warms my heart :)

Oh they are just lovely. Nothing like that here - yet. What a grand place to live. It got up to 38 today - they forecast 44 - and the temperatures have been dropping fast since then - if this keeps up we shall have snow by evening - nononono - not snow, please not snow. Enjoy your lovely week ahead my friend.

Diane,
How nice you have some pretty pink azaleas....though it has been unseasonably warm here, we don't have such pretty colors!!!! I certainly enjoyed walking with you!!! Hope all is well!!!

The pink azaleas are so pretty, Diane. What a gorgeous sight that must be from your back yard. I've always loved azaleas and planted them at one of our old houses. :)

Have a splendid week.

With our cold weather, I'm really enjoying visiting your flowers. Beautiful!

Lorrie said...

Those azaleas really brighten up my computer screen - outside is grey and drizzly, here (well, it's pitch black as I write, but in the daytime things aren't much better).

hugs,

Much warmer here in the mountains this morning - a balmy 23* but still no talk about snow.

Happy Tuesday

Oh they are so Beautiful!

Lil Raggedy Angie said...

O Diane , they are beautiful . Such a great view you have, I'm going to stare at these pics and daydream that I'm down for a visit ! Because here in Ohio we have heavy snow falling with 25 degree temp that will be falling below zero overnight !

Pamela Gordon said...

What a beautiful hedge to view every day along the golf course. It's sunny and cold here with snow on the way tonight.
Hugs, Pam

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Aren't they gorgeous! When we rented a condo near a golfcouse the gardens and landscaping was very camera worthy, not so much where walk now from the rented house.
I see a tornado touched down in Cape Coral where we have the house for next month - I hope!

Debby Ray said...

Oooh...they are so lovely, Diane! We have a few that are that color in our front yard but I think they are prettiest when they are all clumped together like that. What a lovely sight for the eyes!

Beautiful, Diane. I miss all of the gorgeous azaleas we had in North Carolina. xo Laura

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing a touch of your Florida sunshine!

Mary Cromer said...

Oh the glorious sunshine and colour for these eyes...beautiful, thank you~

Maggie Ann said...

Hi Diane, How sweet of you to come by and leave me a comment. Thank you! We'd been so busy with the living room re-do and everything, blogging was forgotten. And I should say...hubby being home 24/7 does make a difference how I spend time...plus old age slowing me waaay down. =) Good blogging friends like you are so special! I appreciate you.

Your post is great 'eye candy' on a January day in Pennsylvania! The temp is in the teens and the roads are ice covered and dangerous. My hubby is retired from the Post Office....and they offer apts in Sarasota FL. but we wouldn't know what we were getting into..at all. Would you happen to have heard of these?

I so enjoyed your gorgeous azaleas picture....wow! What a burst of welcome color and beauty...hope your day is extra-special.
