The last couple of weeks in Central Florida have bought blue skies, cool fresh air and warm sunshine. It is a wonderful time of year to be sure! We love to go out to the beach on part of the Cape Canaveral National Seashore to walk and blow the cobwebs away. The last time I took you on a walk out there it was wild and stormy. This weekend it was definitely more typical of Florida!
It’s a lovely place to walk in the shallows and look for shells.
I loved this huge piece of driftwood washed up on the shore and watching the wading birds running back and forth avoiding the waves.
On the drive back we came across this beautiful area of wildflowers. The haze of color was simply stunning. I really don’t like taking photos in such bright light as it just doesn’t do the scene justice but I just couldn’t resist capturing them!
I love to see natural areas like this given over to wildflowers. It is such a haven for insects and birds and doesn’t need the constant mowing. The yellow Coreopsis was dedicated as Florida’s state wildflower in 1991 but I haven’t been able to identify the red or the tiny blue flower yet. I am wondering if the red is come kind of Campion?
Back home I have been enjoying spring days out in the garden, potting up spring flowers or sowing cut flower seeds.
Someone else likes spending time out here too….
There is certainly a lot of pink in the garden at the moment.
From potted Gerbera Daisies to different Azaleas, which are in full flower.
Some of the roses are starting to flower too after their tidy up, not heavily yet, but a few blooms here and there.
Bermuda’s Anna Olivier
I’m anxiously waiting for some of the cut flowers I sowed before winter to flower. They look pretty close…
Ammi Majus has some flower heads finally, the Batchelor’s Buttons and Stocks are close behind.
Hopefully the weather doesn’t get too warm in the next few weeks so they can last! Is Spring springing or fall starting wherever you are?
Thanks for visiting!
