I kept seeing fences as we walked so today I’ll try to stick to those photos.

Thank you!

Gorgeous flowers, especially the azaleas! I wish the subdivision we're in had more landscaped properties but most have minimal plants and utilize hibiscus mostly.
Have a good weekend sis.

Diane, It's so pretty and I would have to stand and breath in the fragrance. I bet it is heavenly. Hope you have a fun time today. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

AZALEAS

haaaaaaaaaachooooooooooo

Cherdecor said...

Oh my! I love azaleas! I could walk in this park all day long. When we lived in Florida back in 1972, the house where we lived was on a street with a lot of azaleas. When we put our house up for sale, the lady who bought it said that when she drove onto our street and saw all the azaleas, she knew she had to live on that street. Yeah, I am one of those kind of people too!

Oh, what a beautiful walk you have taken us on, Diane! Such beautiful flowers and the photo of the flowers along the fence with the lake in the distance is wonderful! Sweet blessings xx Karen

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Just beautiful! I think the azaleas are confused here and might bloom early.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Gorgeous- I wish I had a pretty place like that to walk! No flowers to speak of here except for some jonquils that are mighty confused about what month it is!

Christine said...

I'm so glad I had my hiking shoes ready as this was a beautiful walk with colourful blooms and fences along the way!

Wow, those blooms are impressive! Thanks for linking up today and have a great weekend!

Wow lucky you to have such beautiful places to walk.
It was so nice walking along with you.

Gorgeous. I am SO envious. Be an overnight for us, but worth it ...to my l'must visit' list ...maybe for next year, as it looks like Feb is the best month.

Maggie Ann said...

Those pictures make me wish I could be there in person....love the flowers! We are having unseasonably warm weather up here but no flowers yet....for sure! =)

The Gaines have the show on tv...'Fixer Upper'. Netflix might have a season of it....love to watch the transformation Joanna and Chip do for people as they renovate

Shelia said...

Hi Diane! Oh, this place is so beautiful. Maybe one of my favorites you've shown in some time. How far do y'all walk? I'm impressed. Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,

Spring is busting out all over! It's blooming here in North Central AR and my workload has already doubled it's been so nice! Happy Spring!

Rainbow Springs State Park is so lovely. What a peaceful place with all those vibrant Azaleas. I love that second picture. That's a really nice one, and looks like a picture book. :)
