Sholom Park Beauty


You can always expect to see some beautiful sights when you stop at Sholom Park.


I didn't stay long but I enjoyed being there!


It's a place of beauty and peace.

We're had so many butterflies in our flowers this summer. They are loving the heat I guess!


Have you found any nice parks in your area to spend time in? It's worth driving around! I love knowing there are places I can go to have some quiet moments and enjoy nature!

It's important for healthy living!

I’m joining Angie for Mosaic Monday HERE .

Shalom Park is a lovely name and a place one would hope to find tranquility and beautiful creatures.

Hello
Shalom is a pretty name for the park. I love the egret photos and your beautiful garden and butterfly images. We do have a lot of choices of park here for walking. Enjoy your day, wishing you a great new week ahead!

Indeed, and the photo of the butterfly is beautiful! Have a grand day! It's raining here. . .very damp!

Cath said...

Diane, we have a small park near our home but it is not as lovely as Sholom Park. There s a park in downtown Decatur called Delano Park that has a beautiful rose garden. Sometimes Marvin and I go and walk on a trail on our church's property that is very nice as well.

I love the birds and flowers in Florida. It's super that you have so many butterflies. We haven't had many of them lately. It worries me. We do have one really beautiful park near by that Pogo and I love to visit. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Diane, Ted and I have driven around , just enjoying the pretty skies and low humidity. I love the pictures, I still think you should be making greeting cards with those pictures. LOL. All the great birds and butterflies would look good on a card. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

Sandra said...

the park is properly named for sure. Shalom means peace and it is peace FULL... lovely pics

Oh yes, Parks and open green areas are so important for my mental and physical health! It’s good to get away for a Nature vacation, but I am always especially grateful City Parks and nature walks close to where most people live!

You have lovely wild life over there! I have only common small birds, but they greet me singing every morning <3 Enjoy your strolls!

All the best Jan

That is a beautiful place! I have a favorite park too. Sometimes my kids groan when I drag them along, but I just *have* to go there sometimes to soak up some nature.

Jeanie said...

My park is the "Ditch" here at home. I got a couple wonderful shots today thought it might be a bit before I post them. Love that egret!

Ann said...

That is a pretty park.

Such beauty!

Vee said...

It doesn’t take long to savor a place... I can’t enjoy anything “long” these days myself.

I haven't been here for a while. I am so happy I made it today. Love all the photos. What a nice place to visit.August has been a difficult month for us. SO I am happy I was here. I hope your week is beautiful HUGS

Terri D said...

Lovely photos! I am looking forward to visiting some of the many parks here in Polk County once my knees are working again!

Barbara said...

Yes, we have had a lot of butterflies here, especially in our backyard. They seem to love my huge pot of begonias. Yellow butterflies, in particular. Maybe they fly over here from Sholom Park???

Laurel Wood said...

Such lovely photos from a gorgeous park.
We are finding many places to enjoy around our new home. Many of them near Lake Hartwell.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

I like the looks of Shalom Park. The wild orchard look of our backyard spoils me to travel far to a park. Fortunately for us that when we want to see redwoods or the ocean or rugged mountains, we need only drive an hour away, sometimes less if the traffic is kind.

Angie said...

Diane - I like your new header, especially the font. How wonderful that you can see such beauty in a short time at the Park. As you know, we have been spending our time at Glacier National Park! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday, my Florida friend!

Nancy Chan said...

We don't have any nearby parks filled with flowers and butterflies but there are some nice parks we can visit. I like our recreational park which we go for our morning walks but there are not pretty flowers or butterflies to enjoy. Just beautiful sunrise for most mornings and some clean fresh air.

I am looking forward to a little cooling down so that I can begin to explore the parks nearby. xo Laura

Carol @Comfort Spring Station said...

Gorgeous photos - birds, butterflies, flowers and park. I'd love to sit a while.

Kit said...

How lovely!! We have a park here called Greenough Park and to wander thru is to feel like you are in a dense forest. It smells wonderful! :) Kit

Rose said...

Love the butterfly shots.

I do wish there was a park close to here...but there just isn't.

italiafinlandia said...

True! Staying in the nature helps healthy living! :)

Red Rose Alley said...

I haven't seen any butterflies lately. It seems they've all disappeared. You always catch some good pictures of them, Diane. And that white egret is a beauty. Shalom Park sure does look peaceful and lovely. So much wonder in nature, isn't there?

ps....I'd love to see your wool plaid blankets that you put on back of the chairs in your library. They sound cozy and warm.

Beautiful, I like the green of Sholom Park.
