Happy New Year!

 Time flys when you're having fun...almost forgot to share!

 New Years Eve was magical with all the fireworks... we even stayed up til midnight this year!

 Will I even get over the splendor of the foliage here? I don't think so!

 Artwork is everywhere, even in the most unlikely places!

 The squirrels are so tame that you can hand feed them!

 The weather changes rapidly, but the skies are magnificent!

 Palm trees go well with the Christmas tree I think!

 Winter here seems a prolonged Autumn!

 Can't get enough of my feathered friends!

 The swans teach me to go with the flow!

 Some of the flowers are still a mystery to me...

 but I can always spot a perfect rose. In December!

My new hometown is "The City Beautiful."
I hope this New Year brings you all your heart desires! Namaste!

Summers Up!

 How time flies! We left NJ in June after seeing this gorgeous rainbow.

 The day of departure it was cold and menacing.

 The first I noticed about Florida was how colorful and abundant all the natural foliage is in spite of the heat.

 Salamanders dart about everywhere, they are not shy!

 How lucky to live a short walk from Lake Eola. We can see the fountain from our apartment window.

 Beautiful swans grace the lake and the park-like surroundings.

 The lake turtles are amazing and love to be noticed!

 It's hard to believe this sanctuary sits in the middle of a city.

 I could sit here for hours, except there is so much to see and photograph.
 Summer would not be complete without a trip to the beach, we will be coming here all year long!

 A view from our window, perfect for storm watching!

 I never tire of noticing the frilly palm trees!

 The squirrels are much smaller and thinner here, maybe because they don't have to store up fat for winter?

 Plenty of rainbows to see here, as we have a shower almost every afternoon!

 Evening are just divine for an after dinner stroll!

 Now that is some bloom, still trying to find out what it is!

 Love the toes on this cutie pie!

 Beautiful grasshoppers, but I'm told they are very destructive.

 Summer might be coming to an end, but here in Florida it seems never-ending. Loving it here!

Spring Sprung

 It seemed long in coming this year but the Spring blooms were delightful!

 Downright riotous!

 One Azalea in bloom can instantly change my mood.

 If you look closely, you will see the Tree Goddess.

 Sometimes a perfectly fluffy cloud gets overshadowed in a scowl.

We saw three rainbows in the month of May... a record for me!

 The weather has been a bit wacky, but the sky still sets nicely.

 Sometimes dramatically so!

 Three little raindrops watch a movie in blur!

 A newly green tree branch bows to the river.

 It fun to notice the fungi!

 This one looks like a little UFO.

 Two flowers, one happy and one sad.

 I see faces in the strangest ways.

 This baby tree thinks she's Rapunzel!

 The old castle is smoking. Very strange!

 The thrill of magenta or petunia, whichever you prefer.

I could go on and on about Nature, but oy vey, I'll end with a little silliness! Enjoy your seasons!
