I took this picture that is located close to Hollis Garden and Lake Mirror outside a restaurant called, The Garden Bistro. They have several different varieties of roses that are gorgeous. This one is perfect for Summer! I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by!


Diana, Princess of Wales

Before we knew the names of these lovely flowers, they reminded me of flowers made from icing that you would transfer onto a cake.  So lovely.  These were taken right outside a restaurant called the Garden Bistro, downtown Lakeland, Florida.

I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by.


Weekly Photo Challenge – Merge

20120818-165933.jpg

When I was younger I loved making/creating collages. I would sit for hours cutting out all of my favorite pictures and quotes from newspapers and magazines and then arrange them on a piece of construction paper or poster board. This weeks photo challenge – merged brought that memory back. The first thing I thought of was a collage. I hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

I hope you enjoy these pictures of this Monarch butterfly I was so fortunate to capture at Hollis Garden in Lakeland, FL.  Monarch butterflies are my favorite.  You can distinguish a monarch from a viceroy by the two black dots on the lower wing and the lighter underside.  I must admit it was definitely challenging and took quite a bit of time.  Thank you for viewing and stopping by.

Last Breath

My husband and I decided to visit a new park in the town that I live in now, Lakeland, FL. It was hot and the humidity was high. We were on our way to the car and came across two trees with dying magnolias. The way the sun was shining caught my eye. I snapped a couple of photo’s and this it what I got. My husband said it reminded him of a “Last Breath.” I hope you enjoy this and thank you so much for stopping by.


Before the Bloom

This Magnolia bud has been staring at me through our kitchen window for the past week. Saturday, I finally took a picture. I was pleasantly surprised. Looks so pretty. I hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
