Scenes from a Spring Paradise in Florida
Hope’s front door
After hearing me moan and groan about our cold, wet, dreary weather, my sister Hope sent me a visual spring tonic. It is hard to express how powerfully seeing these photos taken in her yard impacted me. There is hope! There is beauty! There is glorious life just one state south of here… and it’s headed my way. Really! It is! 🙂
Bee on azalea
These photos are a treasured gift. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Mama cardinal. Hope said she raised a little brood of one in a nest in the azalea bush.
Here’s papa cardinal.
Another little visitor
This is the baby cardinal that the mama raised in the azalea bush!
I think this is my all time favorite. She sent this one to me a while back.
There are 5 birds in this picture. Can you spot them all?
This one was taken a couple of months ago, while it was still winter.
Horse hair on fence. Her rainy days sure are prettier than mine! 🙂
