all in a row…

If you know me at all you know I love trees, especially “naked trees”…without leaves of course!   This was taken while driving on the way home from Florida…fyi…I wasn’t driving!   A crisp cold morning, brrrr.  There is a bit of dirty windshield showing up on the right hand side but I really liked this so excuse the dirt!

These are such cool fellows…I’ve seen a couple outside the zoo one in particular up close and personal.

I’ve returned from Florida and have just gotten to my photos.  They will be in random order depending on what I get to next.   Here is a fellow we found at the Naples Zoo.   I’ve been to the zoo a couple of times and enjoy the fact it is small and hasn’t been overly busy when we have been there making it relatively easy to observe the zoo residents…fyi…all my photos taken this trip were with my iPhone it was just easier to carry around.

You can’t tell from the photo but this little fellow was looking for lunch in the city, with this property butting up to a four lane highway.

serenity…

This photo was taken a couple of years ago, while on our Friday early morning drive to the Rosseau Market.   I was not driving, hence the photo!  It is a tad blurry but I like the photo non the less!

sunset & silhouettes…

This is the sunset I posted last week, taken as I approached the beach…I like the silhouette of the trees on either side.

Saw this fellow and his companion last year…you could tell they were used to people being around as they didn’t appear to be the least bit concerned.

Hibiscus…

I think…if this is not a Hibiscus please let me know?   A knowledgeable fellow explained this is a specie of Bauhinia, common called an “orchid tree.”  Thank you Russel at russelrayphotos2.com

laying down…

this particular Bougainvillea tree is on the property of the condo we rented in Key West this year.   It has grown terribly out of shape, completely bending over, and yet it continues to thrive.   As you can see it is lifting the interlocking brick as it grows.   tree.key.west.2015t to thrive.

 


where is spring?

How has your spring been so far?  Ours hasn’t arrived yet…check out our snow banks!   As I am writing this it is snowing, in the morning the temperature is supposed to be -26F or -14C with the wind chill!   …could be worse right?

washed up…

Saw many pieces of coral like this washed up on the shoreline. It was windy & wavey  for the first few days, which meant the beach was covered in sea shells. A bit farther down the beach from our location it was soft sand, so our area is a bit of a catch all when windy…we knew this from last year.

tranquility…

I was looking through the hundreds of photos I took while away and realized 95% of them are of my granddaughter!  The other 4% are of family with her and 1% is of sites while away!   I didn’t realize I did this…was always taking a photo so thought there would be many to post but it turns out there isn’t…

Here is a simplistic one, but one that speaks to my heart!!!  While I don’t/can’t sail, I love the water…
