A Neighborhood Walk at Sunset

I don’t walk as much in my neighborhood in the summer months. The asphalt street absorbs the heat all day long and even in the evenings it can still be HOT!

But I like to walk around the block to the little pond.

You never know what you’ll see!

A little ‘fuzzy’ because of the twilight but still fun to see.

Isn’t this tree beautiful in full bloom?

One more view of the pond!

And then on the way home, a rainbow appears through the trees!

It just doesn’t get any better than that.

And it makes you SO glad you walked with a camera hanging around your neck!

I’m joining Saturday’s critters HERE

and I’d Rather B Birdin’.

Your neighborhood looks like a lovely place to walk (weather permitting). How sweet the little duck family is and that rainbow is a beautiful ending.

Linda said...

Wow! I’m always in awe of the beauty all around you! What a lovely place to live!
There’s no walking around hereday or night! I’ll do some Tai Chi in the camper with the AC on. Even cracknked up high, it will be a little warm in here by the time it’s the hottest outside.
Happy Saturday!

What a wonderful walk in the neighborhood, Diane. And a precious duck family. The area around the pond looks so green and groomed. And my favorite was the rainbow. Such a special gift after your walk on your way home. : )

I love seeing a bit of your neighborhood, Diane. I think it is wonderful all the planned neighborhoods in FL...they are much different than the ones that we have here.
I hope you have a beautiful, blessed Sunday- xo Diana

Isn't it amazing the wonderful gifts you find from Mother just a rock throw from the front door?

Jeanie said...

Don't you love seeing a parade of baby ducks? I do! And is that a rainbow or a sundog? Either way, fabulous!

Beautiful and lucky to have that nearby destination!

I love the lush, green of the country. The Duck families are so precious! The biggest surprise was the wonderful rainbow. Thank you. Love from Aunt Helen

Love those little ducklings! You had a really pretty evening walk.

Jeannie said...

It COULD have been better...if you had looked closer under the rainbow and found the pot of gold.
